Preparing the e-course Operation of Surveillance and CSURV Devices
) for my prospective students, I've asked myself the following questions.
Are surveillance and competitive intelligence two separate areas of commercial investigations (as suggested, for example, at http://www.ionasia.com.hk/investigations.php
) or are they not [for example, "The aspects of observation and surveillance, just like in any intelligence undertaking, should also be present in competitive intelligence.
" ( http://trendsupdates.com/competitive-intelligence-keeping-your-frie...
)? If the latter was true, what role would surveillance play in the work of Competitive Intelligence professionals? Do companies resist CI surveillance in the same manner as citizens resist state surveillance?
Would you please assist me in answering the above questions? In your opinion, should I multiply these questions? What else should be added?
