Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP)


Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP), is a 501(3)(c) global nonprofit membership community of business experts across industry, academia, and government who come together to build and share strategic intelligence, research decision-support tools, processes and analytics capabilities. The resulting collaboration of our membership supports strategy and other organizational disciplines to drive competitive advantage. Our network of professionals stems from a myriad of organizations both profit and non-profit. Our mission is to enhance the success of our members through leadership, education, advocacy, and networking.

Specifically, SCIP provides education and networking opportunities for business professionals working in the rapidly growing field of competitive intelligence (the legal and ethical collection and analysis of information regarding the capabilities, vulnerabilities, and intentions of business competitors). Many SCIP members have backgrounds in marketing, strategy, market research, strategic analysis, science and technology, data science, economics.


Celebrating over 30 years! 

Established 1986

Established in 1986, today SCIP has chapters around the world, with individual members in nations around the globe. In addition, SCIP has alliance partnerships with independent affiliate organizations in many countries.

The Importance of a Dedicated CI Community 

As an organization of individual CI professionals, SCIP is dedicated to providing you with the training and knowledge to pilot your company towards competitive success while maintaining the highest ethical standards. From educational seminars to networking opportunities, SCIP emphasizes the need for CI professionals to learn from each other and stay aware of the latest developments in information gathering, analysis, and dissemination. Through our special events and publications, SCIP members survey changes in the business environment and know, before anyone else, what lies ahead. While some decision makers may attempt to sail blindly through the global marketplace, it is the duty of the trained CI professional to show them alternative courses that will avoid potential dangers, and to take advantage of the tactics and strategies that lead to bottom-line success.
