Assessing and Communicating the Value of CI
REGISTER AT https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/972202774
Description: Assessing a CI function's value, especially its products and contributions to a company's business continues to be a major challenge for most CI professionals. There are several typical reasons given for this: Not sure how to do it; it requires a joint approach with other departments, with some "political" complications; or, just never tried it – seems too complicated. However, for those few that have tried and those very few that have made it a regular part of their CI practice, the satisfaction and benefits are more than welcomed. This will describe both the measurements you might use to assess your CI and some of the most effective ways to communicate the results.
1. Knowing what measures can be used to assess the value and/or effectiveness of your CI products and operations.
2. Understanding which measurers are most appropriate for different CI operations and activities.
3. Becoming familiar with the best way(s) to communicate the value and/or effectiveness of your CI products and services.
