Detailed Course Description
Intelligence projects revolve around the need for information. Thus, delivering relevant and well-packaged intelligence to the people who requested it is of utmost importance.
Intelligence deliverables are the tangible output of organizational intelligence projects. At the end of the day, measuring the value and impact of the eventual deliverables that the intelligence program produces must have timeliness, accuracy, and above all, relevance. The intelligence deliverables provide decision-makers with insights and intelligence that will help them make confident strategic and tactical decisions.
This online course will review what types of intelligence are obtained and how to package it in a way that ensure value to specific audiences. This course will also step through which areas should be summarized for organizational strategic consumption and where tactical considerations need to be maintained.
In the long run, an intelligence program’s future will depend on how well the deliverable has been produced compared to if they understood the needs of those who requested it.
