Course Description

Information is now so easily available in such quantities that it seems impossible to make use of it effectively. No matter which industry sector, if you can make accurate assessments of the future intentions of competitors; gain insight into developing situations and recognise potential difficulties, you will gain a significant advantage over your competitors. In order to do this you must identify accurate information, find the information that is relevant to your organisation, recognise indications of future intentions and ensure that reporting procedures and decision making are sufficiently responsive. You will learn and practice the preparation of an intelligence model to enable the effective use of information. You will recognise the capabilities of different sources, direct and target the collection of information and assess the credibility of these sources and recognise their capabilities. The course covers the storage, collation and management of information and several types of analysis to produce the required assessment. At the end of the course we will describe the importance of effective security to protect all areas of intelligence management, show you techniques used to verify assessment and you will be taught and have the opportunity to practice the presentation of intelligence.
