World-class CI Organizations

The Swiss Competitive Intelligence Association (SCIA) invited members and other interested Competitive Intelligence professionals to the 2009 summer evening event “World-class Competitive Intelligence Organizations: Academic Model vs. Reality” presented by Monika Giese, Basel (Switzerland).

In her presentation Monika provided exciting insights in her decades-long experience as a leading Competitive Intelligence executive in the pharmaceutical industry at Smith Kline, Roche and Novartis among others.

Sharing some best practice tips in terms of exposure within the own organization Monika introduced various models she recommended to develop and run Competitive Intelligence departments or functions within large corporate settings.

With friendly permission of Jan Herring of ACI and world renowned business school professor and Competitive Intelligence scholar John Prescott of Katz Graduate School of Business Swiss Competitive Intelligence Association (SCIA) members learned about their models to evaluate internal Competitive Intelligence capabilities, identify gaps and generate solutions for sustainable Competitive Intelligence operations.
