Tactical, Operational & Strategic Analysis of Markets, Competitors & Industries
This is the slide-deck from a presentation I gave in Fall 2012 for SCIP Boston's CIdea Fest. My actual presentation was fail, as I stuttered and stumbled my way through it, projecting a nervous energy that I imagine was uncomfortable to watch. Nevertheless, it was ideas that were supposed to matter – I think some people got it, but it was lost on many.
My aim was to introduce and adapt the paradigm of network-competition to competitive intelligence. I have since continued to refine and expand my thoughts on this matter.
