How do I conduct more advanced business & industry, international, as well as other specialized research for intelligence applications?

How do I conduct more robust monitoring for intelligence efforts? How do I design research and monitoring efforts for the greatest value, efficiency, and effectiveness?

What are some tools and techniques that can support my research and monitoring efforts and create greater impact?

This, Part 2 of the online course, Intelligence Published Source Collection: Research Techniques, builds on the fundamental concepts and techniques of intelligence research covered in Part 1. We will examine advanced topics that include:

  1. Researching to support common intelligence analytical frameworks
  2. Researching companies, industries, and people for intelligence applications
  3. Intellectual property and other specialized research
  4. Designing and managing effective and robust monitoring efforts
  5. Intelligence research tools.

These topics will focus on supporting intelligence and decision practices and requirements, with emphasis on directly supporting some common intelligence and business frameworks. This continues to build from general business research, as well as fundamental competitive intelligence research sources and methods that we covered in Part 1. In Part 1, we covered open source intelligence, ensuring balanced and thorough coverage of sources, best practices. For Part 2, we will continue to emphasize creative techniques and innovative approaches that sustain intelligence research, as we look more systematic and robust research and monitoring practices, and offering more impact through our efforts. This course includes exercises/ discussions involving intelligence research to support analysis.

Prerequisite: Participants enrolled for the Intelligence for the Information Function (IIF) and the Dual Intelligence Certificates are recommended to complete course INTEL-04.

As with each course in this program, this online course considers issues and opportunities for information professionals in intelligence and decision support, as well as in transitioning into intelligence practice.

Course Level

Fundamental to intermediate – Essential concepts, practices, and resources to building intelligence practices, as well as topics that builds on previous concepts covered in other courses in this program.

Course Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will understand fundamental sources and techniques used in competitive intelligence research in the context of current intelligence requirements, practices, and trends. Participants will gain a deeper understanding regarding how published source collection relates to other intelligence functions, techniques, applications, and the Intelligence Process, with particular emphasis on specific intelligence and business/industry research models and practices that are commonly used, as well as more robust monitoring methods. When presented with essential intelligence research tasks, participants will be able to support and satisfy the tasks efficiently and effectively.

Specifically, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the purpose, function, and types of Published Source Collection, and its relationship to other intelligence function.
  2. Apply Published Source Collection (including research and monitoring techniques, practices, resources, and tools) in support of specialized intelligence applications, including specific intelligence analysis frameworks.
  3. Demonstrate the ability to conduct international and other specialized research on industries, public & private companies, and company leadership/management effectively and efficiently.
  4. Develop and design robust monitoring systems to support various intelligence needs, program efficiencies, and greater impact.
  5. Use and optimize the application of key techniques, practices, resources, and tools for gathering intelligence information of published sources.

Course assessment, exercises, and discussions will measure and evaluate the degree of understanding that participants achieve over the learning process.

Participants will develop skills and abilities according to professional competencies outlined by professional associations and Knowledge inForm. Course assessment, exercises, and discussions will measure and evaluate the degree of understanding that participants achieve over the learning process.
