Neuerscheinung: "Starting a Competitive Intelligence Function"

Wie bereits in diesem Weblog und einiger meiner Vorträge erwähnt, die Competitive Intelligence Foundation hat nun das neue Fachbuch "Starting a Competitive Intelligence Function" veröffentlicht, zu dem ich ein Kapitel beisteuern durfte: "Challenges, Obstacles, and a Path to Success: A Global Corporation Case Study".

Das Buch wurde am Ende wesentlich umfangreicher als geplant. Besonderer Dank gebührt Kenneth Sawka als Editor in chief und Bonnie Hohhof von SCIP als Koodrinatorin des gesamten projekts.

Sie können das Buch auf der offiziellen SCIP site bestellen. Das Buch erschien in englischer Sprache: ISBN: 978-0-9771825-4-1.
