The great Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu once said,"Know your enemy, know yourself and a thousand battles will be yours."
This presentation will take this concept and apply it to the relationship between CI practitioners and senior executives. Too often, CI practitioners, asked to provide intelligence to high-level decision makers, falter because they do not understand the executives requirements and the best way to communicate information to them. Many have little or no contact with senior management, let alone the opportunity to validate their CI needs and preferences. And even when a CI practitioner does provide useful and actionable insight, they often will not receive any feedback and thus be unprepared for their next encounter with senior management. How can a CI practitioner get ahead? What to do?
- Identify common pitfalls
- Develop strategies to avoid mistakes
- Develop a plan of action for C-suite encounters
