SCIM - Strategic Competitive Intelligence for Managers

Strategic Competitive Intelligence for Managers

Knowing when and how to invest in intelligence will make the difference

As a manager you need to decide when and where the company will invest in intelligence. To make sound decisions you need to have a fundamental understanding of the costs, benefits, and organizational issues associated with efficient strategic intelligence operations. Our 3-day intensive certificate in strategic competitive intelligence is especially designed for those managers and decision makers who want to make a difference.

You will work together in small teams on assignments during the day and also in the evenings. Included is the pre-workshop dinner, which provides the setting for an initial briefing and a get together for the participants.
