Strategic decision-making is hard and there are no simple solutions to make it easier. This course has the practical tradecraft skills necessary for intelligence officers and analysts to influence decisions and help shape their organisation's success. Some courses teach structured analytical tools, hoping that if these are applied correctly then good assessments follow. Others focus on data analytics as the solution. Both approaches fail in isolation. Hence, this course covers the broader skills needed to be a strategic intelligence officer including assessment, writing, scanning and warning skills. Practical learnings are derived from lived experience in a range of strategic intelligence positions across government and the private sector. We use strategic case studies as a practical framework for consideration, learning and understanding. It is a specialised course and supplements other training in the fundamentals of the intelligence craft and in organisational and personal bias which are contained in our other courses.
