Competitive Intelligence

Actionable Competitive Intelligence

Intelligence and insight that helps you achieve your objectives and build your competitive advantage.

It includes tools and techniques that answer questions such as: What are my competitors doing? Where is my market heading? And, what is the best path to growth?


From current awareness programs to deep dive reports on organizations and industry sectors, and strategic assessments (such as five forces/four corners, PESTLE, SWOT, etc.) to scenario planning, quality competitive intelligence drives strategic business growth.

It encompasses tracking your competitors and the overall marketplace – for competitors that could be new product launches, marketing campaigns, personnel moves, structural changes, financial reports, media coverage, and more. Industry trends include consumer drivers, value chain dynamics, macroeconomic forces, innovation and disruption. Things that, when analyzed by a trained mind, can help you navigate the road ahead.

We’re increasingly being tasked to support both proactive and reactive intelligence needs of our clients. A hybrid model of competitive intelligence briefings on on-demand research has become the new normal.
