PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS – April 10:

  • “How to engage senior management in the intelligence process” (by Ingemar Svensson)
    Collaboration is a process of pain. It takes time and efforts. The benefits can be tremendous however. This three-hour workshop links theories and practical exercises around techniques for influencing and creating sustainable interaction with the competitive intelligence cycle.
  • “Are you the Sherlock Holmes of your company?” (by Joost Drieman)- A workshop about collecting and analyzing competitor information.
  • In this workshop we will start with the discussion: Is it important to collect and analyze your competitor? What would be the benefit or are there more important things to do? There are more than 7 different forms of competition. We will zoom in on the differences and how we can use this in our favor, leading to Michael Porters defined difference between destructive and strategic competition. A main part of the workshop is about interactive discussion about finding competitor information by looking at traditional and (more importantly) non-traditional sources.
  • The workshop will end with sharing some best analysis practices. Connecting the dots.
  • Participants will learn how to collect and analyze the competition more effectively and efficiently. A must attend for CI professionals.

Roundtable Discussions:

  • “Baby, you can drive my car” (by Joost Drieman) – A roundtable discussion about the future of intelligence
  • Due to the advent of disruptive technologies, new business models, unconventional competition and artificial intelligence, the intelligence function will change in the coming years. But how? Will intelligence professional be more important than the CEO, or will the role be obsolete? How will intelligence change in terms of Scope, Processes and Organization? Who will be the users of intelligence and how will we communicate?
  • These (and other) questions will be discussed in this highly interactive Round Table session. Will we be able to draw a blue print of intelligence in the future? If so, we know what we need to do now, to keep intelligence relevant.
  • “How will AI change the intelligence work?” (by René Rohrbeck
    In this roundtable we will discuss which intelligence work can be automated and which human intelligence can be replaced with AI. We want to share among participants experiences with automated scanning tools, continuous competitor monitoring tools, AI-enabled weak-signal scanning and pattern recognition. The roundtable will identify good practices and promising avenues for further development.

  • What new methods for competitive and market intelligence are already being used by our peers and leading players in other industries? What can we learn from these examples and how can new methods power the intelligence work in our own organizations?
  • During this roundtable we will discuss how unconventional methods such as advanced social media monitoring, AI-supported analysis and crowd intelligence can make our work both more efficient and more in-depth. Also, how can we avoid pitfalls such as context collapse and different types of bias when working with new digital methods?
