The best competitive intelligence will depend on IP analysis

Written by Duncan Clark on Nov 17, 2016 1:38:04 PM


A number of interviews with customers or suppliers takes place, anecdotal evidence from employees who previously worked for various competitors is collected, some Google searches are carried out and competitors' websites are checked. If there is budget, reports from analysts are purchased and reviewed. At which point, most avenues of enquiry are exhausted. Then, a competitive analysis document with some points of advice is produced and the competitor tracking exercise often ends there, until the next time. If this sounds familiar, you're not alone.
