Just saw your new article on "Examining differences in competitive intelligence practice: China, Japan, and the West" in Thunderbird International Business Review (formerly International Executive), May 1, 2009, v51/3, p249- 261. Great topic.
I particularly love the cartoon. Yes, this year is going well so far, despite concerns heading into the year, clients seem to be hanging in there and even finding budget where there is no official money. Most of it is very tactical, but that makes sense right now. So far so good ... and again Congrats!
Thank you Craig and BIGGGGG congrats to you!
I'll never stop to say that you and each single person I enjoyed in my years at Scip has to share this recognition with me: it's something I owe to each of you!
Please let's keep in touch and let me know if you happen to be in Europe in the next months: we may arrange something together then.
warmest regards from a rainy and cold Milan!
Craig, congrats on the Meritorious award at SCIP09! Been following the #scip09 on twitter and while I'm relieved not to have had the stress of the exhibit hall this year I do miss seeing everyone. Congrats again.
Hi, Craig! Good to hear from you. I taught an introductory CI class in a new local MBA program last fall and mentioned you and Babette and your great books on CI analytical techniques many times! I look forward to catching up with you at SCIP09. Judy
Thanks for the welcome -- it is great to be a part of this community. Please keep me posted if you're ever circulating towards Western Canada -- we've been organizing some informal CI events from time to time and would love to have you join us.
And thanks to you and Babette for your fantastic books!
Craig, thanks for welcoming me! It will be interesting to scrutinize this virtual forum and determine how to leverage for my own assignments as well as how to share and help out. I’m currently part of a team setting up a BI function at a major Swedish/Japanese company and will sure need some enlightening from all smart brains at this turf.
Hey Craig -
Thanks for the note. I've known Babette for some time, and Chris Hall too. I am at MGSM, though how you know is a little mystifying. Are you into divination, or have I mentioned it somewhere? I must have done, cause I don't really believe in the power of the crystal ball. I have to say, you already feature heavily in my bibliography, and I have a number of your books. Thanks for your offer - I'll probably take you up on it.
That would be the kindest remark in the recent times. I am glad CI awareness is widespread now-a-days. A thing to add, the top student from India, could never been a topper, unless and until your training supported him vigorously.
I will surely post more websites, if not podcasts, which would help our community to identify those elusive weak signals for a better cause.
India is wonderful mixture of varied classes of people, ethnicity, food habits and so on. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our country some day , whenever your PDA shows the mode of relaxation and leisure.
Thanks Craig. We took that while waiting to start our family ride in VA. My teenage son dared me to ride that one all the way down the mountain; I'd have done it 15 years ago but no way now with my current knees. Look forward to catching up with you at future SCIP events.
