Robert Handfield's "Supply Market Intelligence - A managerial handbook for building sourcing strategies" is a blueprint for creating and developing an intelligence function for a Procurement department. The purpose of such a function is to provide Procurement management with intelligence on the commercial and financial viability of the company's current suppliers and potential new suppliers. The book is not really focused on identifying relevant Key Intelligence Topics (KITs), but provides instead a great blueprint on how to organize the function within the company. - The author, Robert Handfield, is the CEO of Supply Chain Redesign LLC and the Bank of America Distinguished Professor and Director of Supply Chain Resource Cooperative at the North Carolina State University.

I recently finished the book: “Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking” by Christopher Hadnagy. I highly recommend this title to anyone working in the Business Intelligence, Competitive Intelligence, or Security realms.

Business and Competitive Intelligence Analysis Methods by Fleisher & Bensoussan was a free download to my kindle app today. Not sure if that's too textbooky for you grey-beards, but I was super psyched to see it!

My most recent CI read was two books read more or less simultaneously: Rob Duncan's CI: FAST CHEAP AND ETHICAL, and Ben Gilad's EARLY WARNING. Both excellent, for very different reasons. And a non-CI but related book: HARVARD BUSINESS ESSENTIALS: STRATEGY which is a compendium of strategy articles from the Harvard Business Review.
