It’s strange how today’s the first day I realise how closely related competitive intelligence is to so much of what I’ve been doing and thinking and writing about in the fields of data analysis *slash* business analysis *slash * business intelligence *slash* data science etc.
This discipline even has a professional society of called, aptly enough, Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals, something I quite serendipitously discovered after picking up a book in the library published by them and was feeling curious as to what or who they were).
It’s interesting to figure out how competitive intelligence/analysis fits into the business intelligence umbrella (or how it falls outside of it for that matter), but certainly warrants a look at for anyone interested in leveraging business knowledge/information.
I love to read and write. Professionally, data science, technology, and sales ops are my thing. In my non-professional life, I aspire quite simply to be a good person, and encourage others to do the same. For those who care, I test as INFJ/INTJ (55/45?) in the MBTI.
