Description & Coverage
Description:

Environments needing information technology and management skills combined often find that strategic information and intelligence is not always readily available. How to scan management environments for relevant information and then make sense of the information remains a challenge.

Managing Strategic Intelligence: Techniques and Technologies builds a network of excellence in effectively managing strategic information for senior management. It focuses on environment information scanning and organization-wide support for strategic intelligence. Managing Strategic Intelligence: Techniques and Technologies prompts further development for theories and best practices in strategic intelligence, and provides future direction for innovative systems by using intelligent agents. This book also provides practical guidance to organizations on developing effective approaches, mechanisms, and systems to scan, refine, and support strategic information provision.

Reviews & Statements

"Xu collects 14 chapters by international contributors that map recent developments in strategic intelligence that emphasize the "pull of inquiry rather than the push of data." For senior managers and advanced students, the authors address the nature, benefits, and challenges of business intelligence; current frameworks, systems, and practices for garnering organization-wide support; and automated technologies to enhance strategic intelligence processing."
