 Competitive Intelligence for Government Contractors


For small business owners and managers, researching and gathering information about competitors is a great method for developing business value propositions, understanding the marketplace, and changing the means in which a target consumer or organization is sold to. The foundational elements of commercial market competitive intelligence are the same for businesses wanting to succeed in selling to the government, but are exercised in a much different way.
