ACIVerified_CIPIFinalThis course builds on what you learn in the Intelligence Sources course. You will learn practical frameworks to assess competitive cost of operations, to analyze the true capabilities of a rival, as well as its immediate future actions. You will emerge with a practical toolkit to address specific business situations your company faces.

Using case studies you will:

  • Benchmark actual business practices and costs of competitors
  • Anticipate a company’s near-term tactical moves
  • Learn how and if a competitor can actually execute on its strategy
  • Construct an early warning approach to monitor a rival’s changing product, service and market shifts
  • Cut through a competitor’s smokescreen to accurately anticipate and prepare for a competitor’s new product roll out

Throughout the day, we will introduce you to analytical frameworks such as competitor benchmarking, financial and cost, and new product roll out analysis.
