SCIP IntelliCon 2020 will provide attendees with best practices, frameworks, contacts, and awareness of technologies and services to enable strategic advantage and growth in the face of disruption and uncertainty. By introducing several innovative learning formats, new experts and facilitators, and more robust networking, SCIP IntelliCon will give attendees what they need to transform the value that they bring to their organizations.
It’s been 10 years since the last recession, and many strategic, market & competitive intelligence (SMCI) departments have grown complacent, producing the same reports defending existing businesses against known competitors. Software may be more sophisticated, and data is certainly “bigger”, but unless SMCI professionals contribute directly to growth, they’ll soon find their resources drying up and staff laid off. Those who wish to survive must be prepared to transform their value proposition, under budgetary pressures in a disrupted world. Those who continue to execute an outdated strategy will find themselves left behind.
Rather than hearing recycled speeches, attendees will be exposed to fresh ideas, frameworks, and tools that will help them transform the value that they deliver their organizations.
Most best practices come from outside our organizations, making vibrant professional networks a must. New networking formats and technologies will help attendees make professional connections that stick.
When disruption is the new normal, “stay the course” is no longer an option. Several of our sessions will address how to build a function that can pivot more quickly in the face of uncertainty.
SCIP IntelliCon will have a laser-focus on ideas that can make a tangible difference for attendees with limited resources and a desire to thrive through disruption.
