Competitive Analysis Tools That Deliver Value: SCIP New Jersey Chapter Workshop October 17

This interactive event will provide an introduction to the less familiar competitive intelligence analytical techniques that can improve a company’s understanding of current markets and competitors.

Many competitive intelligence practitioners rely on a limited set of analytical tools they have found useful in evaluating industry and competitor activities. At the October 17 SCIP New Jersey Chapter meeting, Fred Wergeles will lead an interactive session to explore additional analytical techniques that can improve senior managers understanding of current markets and competitors.

Built around a case study, facilitated group exercises will reinforce attendees understanding on how these tools can be applied in their own work environment. In addition, participants will receive a template to help them work through their choice and application of these analytical methodologies.

The SCIP New Jersey Chapter meeting will be held Wednesday, October 17 at the Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) building in Newark New Jersey from 6 pm to 9 pm. Registration cost for SCIP members is $10; for non-members, $20. To register for this workshop, please go to the website or contact Robyn Reals at 703.739.0696 or
