We now live in a world driven by hyper-competition. Hyper-competition is where too many businesses are pursuing too little business; i.e. there is not enough demand to go around for all providers of goods and services. The knowledge base for managing in this hyper-competitive environment is called Competitive Intelligence. Competitive Intelligence is a process of giving you insights into what might happen soon.

Competitive Intelligence Training is a program structured to equip participants with tools to collate, analyze, and apply information about products, domain constituents, customers, and competitors for short term and long-term strategic planning needs of an organization. Organizations and organizational units increasingly employ competitive intelligence (CI) to support decision- making, management, and to build and sustain competitive advantages. As the formal practice of CI has grown in adoption and sophistication, information professionals are often charged with intelligence-related responsibilities.
