Critical Thinking for Strategic Intelligence



"Critical thinking" is essential for superior intelligence. While this practice is well developed in national and military intelligence, in competitive/market intelligence it seems to be somewhat neglected.

 

In fact critical thinking for strategic intelligence is a structured analysis approach. It includes double-checking information sources and hypotheses and creating a consistent story. 

 

Our panelists will discuss their experience in strategic intelligence

  • What are the most efficient critical thinking approaches?
  • Implementation of “strategic intelligence” in corporate business processes
  • Career paths and competence build-up

And many more questions that our audience can pose in this live event.
