Anticipate Your Competitive Intelligence Landscape Using an Early Warning Process: Three Case Studies. (San Diego, California, USA)
Ponente: Alessandro Comai

SCIP 2008 Annual Conference

Anticipation is an essential key to strategy. Any proactive intelligence process should incorporate advanced analysis techniques that can define the risky terrain of the business landscape. Strategic environmental analysis is a tool for ascertaining what is happening in the context that is relevant to the firm. Its main objective is to help anticipate the future and encourage the decisions that are most likely to lead to success. This session is aimed at experts as well as a wider audience interested in understanding the benefits of building an early warning system and how it works in practice. Three case studies are used to illustrate such a system.

Ponente: Alessandro Comai y John E. Prescott

Full-Day Workshop, 3rd Annual International Conference SCIP Czech, November 27, 2007, Hotel Cechie Praha • Prague• Czech Republic.

This workshop provides a hands-on approach for establishing a world-class competitive intelligence capability. In Phase 1, participants use a diagnostic tool to assess their level of CI capability in nine areas central to world-class status. Phase 2 engages participants in a dialogue involving the activities and skills necessary to achieve world-class status in each of the nine factors. Phase 3 utilizes the outcomes of the previous phases as inputs into creating a pathway to enhancing and evolving participants’ CI functions. The nine-factor framework was developed based on interactions with world class CI functions and existing literature. The framework has been applied and enhanced through interactions with CI functions in North America, Europe and Asia. Participants will be provided with the diagnostic tool, prescriptive activities and skills required for success in each of the nine factors and a pathway template.

This paper discusses how the principles and techniques of project and program management can be applied to the establishing a competitive intelligence capability. You will review outcome statements which highlight key choices that define what CI capability is best suited to the needs of an individual organization. A model will provide a road map to help define an appropriate CI destination and select an effective route to get there. This model has potential benefit for anyone considering setting up or modifying a competitive intelligence function, and for CI consultants offering advice to client organizations.

Examine a set of outcomes to describe world-class CI capability.
Understand how to set up a road map that will help those setting up an appropriate CI capability and select an effectove route towards it.
