The Corporate Training & Development Group at Frost & Sullivan is pleased to announce its 2006 Quarterly Training Briefing Presentation on Best Practices in Competitive Intelligence to be held on Wednesday, October 18, 2006 at 1:00 pm EST.
The briefing will introduce participants to the importance of collecting competitive information, distilling findings into actionable steps, circulating information to key stakeholders, and finally, infuse tactical recommendations into overall organizational strategy.
According to Bo Boylan, "Companies performing best practice competitive intelligence initiatives have found a way to move from simple information gathering to strategy implementation."
Highlights include explaining the difference between competitive information and competitive intelligence, comparing and contrasting a centralized and decentralized competitive intelligence structure, reviewing market research tools and techniques to capture relevant, accurate data, and establishing competitive intelligence as an embedded organizational priority as opposed to a series of disconnected research projects.
This will benefit anyone involved in the day-to-day management, planning or implementation of competitive intelligence. This includes managers and executives in areas such as strategic planning, marketing, sales, finance, research & development, manufacturing/operations and others.
