Competitive intelligence for international business
Business globalisation necessitates the need for businesses to continuously collect and analysis information on their competitors and use it proactively to survive. This process is know as 'competitive intelligence' and is contrary to traditional management techniques. Information retrieval should embrace the social environment as well as the business environment. Top management commitment is essential for the process to succeed. The process must also be accepted by the organisation as a whole. Monitoring and the introduction of incentive schemes is advisable.
