Turbo-Charging Your KITS: Matching Analytical Methods, SCIP DC Chapter, April 17

On Wednesday, April 17, the SCIP DC Metropolitan Chapter is hosting this onsite eSeries chapter meeting. For registration information, please go here.

Intelligence practitioners have long recognized the importance of proper tasking in taking on important projects for their clients. What has often been overlooked, however, is the need to match up their KITs with analytical methods that can best support their client’s needs. In a number of key respects, pairing up analysis models and client’s needs is akin to on-line dating. Each analysis method has unique characteristics that make it better or worse meeting for the needs expressed by our clients. Practitioners need to take this relationship into account in order to optimize the other parts of their project cycles and to enhance the likelihood of  delivering desired results.

In this session, we’ll identify several demonstrated concepts that  “turbo-charge” the matching process, identify methods that match up particularly well with KIT/KIQ types, and share some new methods that you are probably not using presently that can be useful to you and your company’s ongoing intelligence efforts.
