Competitive Intelligence Helps You Win
Tom Hawes Portrait
March was the time of meetings. The annual Society of Competitive Intelligence Professionals conference was held in Washington, D.C. April will bring news about important collaborations flowing from meetings held there.

Meanwhile, my March competitive intelligence survey yielded some fascinating results. See if you agree with my conclusions after reading the summary.

Finally, the Spring is a good time to review how I can help someone that you know. The News and Updates section explains how.

Does Your Organization Understand Competitive Intelligence?

My March survey of competitive intelligence practitioners suggests that many organization do not.

The results show that 70% of competitive intelligence customers have no better than an average understanding. This gives an enormous advantage to the other 30% that do understand.

A discussion of the results can be found on my Strategically Thinking blog. The complete survey data set is on my JTHawes Consulting website.
