Read Frequently Asked Questions

This competitive intelligence (CI) training will help attendees develop a CI toolbox to do their own CI research in order to adopt ethical business best practices and improve business decision making.

Why Should You Attend:

Competitive intelligence professionals play a vital role in developing a successful customer relationship management (CRM) strategy in the organizations. Traditional CI is premised on a reactive, two-part relationship—that is, a CI professional responding to what you identify as a need, usually the result of seeing a new threat. But by doing some of this yourself, you can change the nature of the CI process from  reactive to proactive.

  • What is Competitive intelligence (CI) and why should you care about it?
  • How can CI help you in good business decision making?
  • How does doing your own CI research is differ from using a CI professional?

This one hour training will help attendees in finding answers for these questions and will empower them with the tools and techniques of CI.

Why not just always use an internal CI team or an outside CI consultant? There is nothing wrong with those options, and this course will discuss them. It will emphasize on when and how to plan your own research and how to create a CI tool box. It will provide attendees comprehensive knowledge on the research techniques and what are the best sources of raw data.

Topic Background:

If you do CI research yourself, it will differ from how a CI professional would do it for you. Traditional CI is premised on a reactive, two-part relationship—that is, a CI professional responding to what you identify as a need, usually the result of seeing another new threat. But, by doing some of this yourself, you can turn CI from being reactive to being proactive.
