Course Dates: October 1-19, 2018
How to I conduct effective research to answer Key Intelligence Questions, as well as support human intelligence & analysis?
What are effective tools & techniques that can support & enhance my efforts?
Although there are practices & tools in common, effective intelligence research involves distinct considerations, frameworks, techniques, strategy, and resources from general business research. This online course presents & examines these essential aspects to the Published Source Collection (aka literature research or secondary research) function of the Intelligence Process. In this (Part 1) course, we will discuss key techniques and resources, as well as trends in intelligence, content, and technology that affect intelligence research. Topics covered include: devising research strategies, research to support human intelligence gathering and intelligence analysis, traditional & non-traditional resources types & selection, Web monitoring tools, and more. This course includes an exercise & discussions involving intelligence research to support analysis.
Course Level: Fundamental (Basic concepts for those new to the topic or application)
Course Learning Objectives
At the end of this course, participants will be able to support the fundamental research aspects of the Published Source Collection function in a variety of project contexts. When given an array of intelligence research questions, issues, and problems, participants will be able to fulfill fundamental research needs and outline possible solutions. Specifically, participants will be able to:
- Describe the purpose, function, and types of Published Source Collection.
