Hi Ziad, while I am very familiar with CI and particularly CI in the Asian Pacific region, I am not an expert in the middle east. Maybe there are others in this forum who know the middle east better. Have you checked to see if there are any groups that cover the middle east?
Thanks Babette. I am beginning to see having an in-country relationship is extremely important. Still in the early fact finding part of this, but I may have some other questions.
Hi Richard - In my experience, CI does not really differ across any region per se. The process is still the same however I can point out that in Asia secondary information is often unsatisfactory as numerous governments do not collect, verify or publish accurate information. So when doing CI in Asia you need to rely far more on relationships and local people. The focus in Asia in the CI process then tends to be on primary information collection.
I suspect this would be the case for any CI activity undertaken in countries where governments do not collect nor publish accurate information - say many countries in Africa, South America and Eastern Europe.
The problem in the end though is still the same all over the world ---- the lack of analysis, of the information collected whether primary or secondary, to derive insights.
If you want to discuss this further, don't hesitate to email me.
How does CI in Australia differ from CI in other regions? Are there different techniques, tools or approaches? I have been tagged to come up with an international CI process, but I am thinking this might end up being regionally based. What are the best Australian CI resources, books, CI experts that I could tap into?
I am currently studying an MBA in MGSM and am currently undertaking CI as a subject. I have a major assignment due for this unit to provide a Consultant Report to the CEO of a Company on their Competitive Intelligence approach, problems/solutions and process for ongoing CI. This report is due on 01/09/2011.
Can someone please assist me by suggesting a company and a key executive that I can talk to about this or if working with a CI consultant, I would like to work with them on a case.
