Value-adding to a block of information is an important skill in being able to foster leadership. For example, value-adding to information on a situation or scenario involves several steps, including clarification of the context within which the information exists; providing further and in-depth details; explaining the causes and effects of the situation; developing alternatives available and outlining comparative situations; pointing out the limitations and 'warnings' of the data presented; and forecasting future prospects for the situation.
Value-adding to information has several advantages - enabling effective decision-making, maintaining a continuity in the information management processes and better knowledge transfer.
