Know Your Competition
Competitive intelligence helps a business owner modify his or her firm’s position in the marketplace. This type of information helps the business owner identify the capabilities, intentions and actions of current and potential competitors which can assist the business owner in planning long-term strategy and goals.
What Is Competitive Intelligence?
Competitive intelligence is best defined as the legal and ethical collection and analysis of information regarding the capabilities, vulnerabilities and intentions of business competitors, compiled by using information databases and other “open sources” including ethical inquiry.
Competitive intelligence offers approximations and best views of the market and the competition. An in-depth competitive intelligence analysis can help managers discover new markets or businesses, beat the competition to market, and to foresee their competitor’s actions.
