The Internet age of competitive intelligence by John J McGonagle( )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining a scholarly approach with hands-on advice, McGonagle and Vella, have written the first work to guide CI professionals through the emerging literature of their field. Their book explores the major body of work from the Society of Competitive Intelligence Professionals, now that more businesses worldwide are using CI and either writing about their experiences with it, or joining in new benchmarking studies. The result is the latest information on what really works, what doesn't work, and who is doing what with it. The book is thus a starting point for people new to the field of CI as well as a resource to help experienced professionals do their jobs better."--Jacket

Proactive intelligence : the successful executive's guide to intelligence by John J McGonagle( )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally, tapping into the power of competitive intelligence (CI) meant investing in the development of an internal CI unit or hiring outside consultants who specialized in CI.  Proactive Intelligence: The Successful Executive's Guide to Intelligence offers an alternative: learn how to do it yourself and how to effectively manage the parts you cannot. The tools and techniques that will enable you to produce your own CI for your consumption are out there, and have been honed by decades of work. But, you cannot just adopt them â" you have to adapt them.   Why? Because, when you finish reading this book, you will be the data collector, the analyst, and the end-user. Traditional CI is premised on a reactive, two part relationship â" a CI professional responding to what an end-user identifies as a need; by doing this yourself you can turn CI from being reactive to being proactive. As the decision-maker, you can get what CI you need, when you need it, and then use it almost seamlessly. Written by two of the foremost experts on CI, Proactive Intelligence: The Successful Executive's Guide to Intelligence: shows where and how CI can help you and your firm,  provides practical guidance on how to identify what CI you need, how to find the data you need, and how to analyze it, and discusses how to apply CI to develop competitive- and career- advantages.  Each chapter is supported by important references as well as by an additional list of resources to support and supplement your knowledge. Proactive Intelligence: The Successful Executive's Guide to Intelligence teaches you how to generate proactive intelligence and use it to advance your business and your career- making it an essential resource for managers and executives,  as well as everyone who wishes to integrate CI into their daily work routine

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

McGonagle and Vella maintain that competitive intelligence as we know it is just the first step toward the creation of true "corporate intelligence." Their book explores ways in which new channels of communication and new uses of information and intelligence will change corporations, and how these changes can be anticipated in an organization's strategic planning, crisis management, benchmarking, reverse engineering, and defensive intelligence activities. In doing so, they introduce readers to new techniques, such as "shadow benchmarking" and "factual management analysis." Readable, with useful checklists, forms, reminders, and drawings from real world cases, this book will be essential reading for executives in the public and private sectors, and their colleagues in the academic business community

McGonagle, two of the most prolific authors, recognized experts, and in-demand speakers on the topic of competitive intelligence worldwide. Any manager, executive, or owner of any organization - including medium-sized and large enterprises such as businesses, law firms, hospitals, nonprofits, and universities - as well as anyone inside or outside of a firm who provides competitive intelligence to managers or executives will benefit from reading this book, regardless of previous experience with or knowledge about CI. -- from dust jacket
