Improving Your Business Strategies With Better Competitive Intelligence
Tom Hawes Portrait
February was a busy month!

My regular Strategically Thinking column in Competitive Intelligence Magazine (from the Society of Competitive Intelligence Professionals) began. The first issue included the beginning of a three part case study that will roll out over the next six months.

Which leads me to my next new venture -- I am announcing my new Competitive Intelligence Case Studies site.

For everyone that wanted more information about Gaps Analysis, see the new video presentation.

Finally, have a look at the competitive intelligence survey I completed. Some of the results are surprising.

How can I help you or someone that you know? Let's talk.

Announcing New Website from JTHawes Consulting, LLC

Dedicated to discussions of realistic competitive intelligence cases and problem solving by experts from the Competitive Intelligence community.

Sharing competitive intelligence information among professionals can be problematic. The information is sensitive to companies and clients. This makes problem solving discussions difficult.

Now, in the best tradition of Harvard Business Review, realistic case studies are presented, debated and discussed on my new website. Click here to see the cases, commentators and guidelines. Then, start reading the cases and responses on the blog.
Is Your Competitive Intelligence Above Average?

Surprising results from surveying 24 professionals about their challenges. Are you being well served by your competitive intelligence?

The results show significant challenges for competitive intelligence. A discussion of the results can be found on my Strategically Thinking blog. The complete survey data set is on my JTHawes Consulting website. The survey can be downloaded here

Look where CI is used. Do you need help in any of these areas?
