"I would add that to make use of a corrupt environment, you'd (obviously) need a lot of money, so whether such an environment favours you depends on how much you are willing to spend. And even companies who would be comfortable with some of the…"

"That's an interesting quotation from Stratfor. I still wonder to what extent they are a 'shadow CIA' as the press calls them, or just a normal analyst firm."

"1) Maybe I'm a bit naive but I fail to see why a corrupt or non-corrupt environment is good or bad for CI business. ALL companies need to understand their competitive environment and make decisions on strategy. That's what CI is all about…"

CI and corruption + CI business model

1. Is a corrupt environment good or bad for CI business? (i.e. do you see more opportunities for CI work/more need of CI in countries with higher levels of corruption compared to cleaner ones?)2. How does operating in a more corrupt environment impact the practice of CI? Are there any differences? Should there be a different approach to CI under such circumstances?3. Just out of curiosity: can anyone reference any CI business models out there? We've got plenty of CI theoretical models, and CI…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
Of Romanian origin, I am currently studying for a BA War Studies degree at King's College London, having previously graduated from Bucharest Film Academy as a Cinematographer.
Apart from my London studies and occasional film projects, I run an international NGO of 5000 members (the League of Romanian Students Abroad) that I founded two years ago. I am also developing a further NGO project focusing on war veterans, and a Diplomacy Club based at King's College London.
Website:
http://www.lsrs.ro
My Interest in Competitive Intelligence is:
I have discovered CI less than a year ago and I am fascinated by it. I have already written a project paper on the subject of CI for an Intelligence course in my War Studies degree. I plan to further develop my understanding of CI through my 3rd year dissertation research, and I am strongly considering CI as a career path. My other interests hover around Diplomacy and military/business Strategy, and I feel that CI has the potential to link into these fields in new ways, which I intend to explore in the future.
So, I am joining this community to meet and learn from CI professionals and to find new inspiration for my journeys into this exciting field.

Thank you!
