Quick Introduction of Webinar
Gathering Ethical Information and Intelligence
Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professional (SCIP):
"Competitive intelligence (CI) is the process of monitoring the competitive environment. CI
enables senior managers in companies of all sizes to make informed decisions about
everything from marketing, R&D, and investing tactics to long-term business strategies.
Effective CI is a continuous process involving the legal and ethical collection of information,
analysis that doesn't avoid unwelcome conclusions, and controlled dissemination of actionable
intelligence to decision
makers."
