Turbocharge your Career with SCIP
By participating in SCIP’s mentorship program, members receive guidance and assistance in developing skills that enable them to pursue careers as Intelligence Strategists. The program focuses on four key areas: data collection and analysis, strategy development, effective communication and insight development, and business growth drivers, all supported by SCIP’s Code of Ethics.
How can mentoring help?
Let SCIP help you connect with tenured strategy & intelligence leaders. In addition to developing critical skills, you’ll benefit from guidance and coaching from a mentor who’s walked a mile in your shoes.
How can I give back?
Even if you’re advanced in your career, you can leverage SCIP to connect with an intelligence leader to share best practices, explore out-of-box methodologies, and promote forward-looking perspectives on CI.
What are the results?
Since the program’s start in 2017, we’ve successfully fostered nearly 100 relationships. 92% of participants found the program to be a valuable experience.
Support beyond CI
In addition to core competitive intelligence topics, you can also get/provide guidance in strategy, professional effectiveness, and other areas.
