You send in your reports, but decision makers don’t listen? You try and get colleagues to collaborate and send you information, but they don’t? That’s because you are not doing Competitive Intelligence. You are at best being an archivist. People don’t need more noise. Executives filter 90% of what is sent to them anyway. So what should you do? Listen, learn, and implement by taking this course.

CI 401 War Gaming

War Gaming is and old military planning tool but only recently it has been adapted for commercial use. Its popularity in recent years can be traced in part to the influence of Dr. Gilad’s book, Business War Games (Career Press, 2009) which was the first practical manual for structuring and running war games for business. War Gaming is by far the most effective technique known to planners and decision makers to test strategic moves and initiatives at the corporate, business unit, market or product level before committing significant resources to them.
