“The purpose of the intelligence process is to develop inferences that can be acted on with confidence”

In my pursuit to hone my craft, I recently discovered a free web based training for intelligence analysts;   Introduction to Intelligence Analysis offered by Anacapa Sciences, Inc.   The training, which lasted about 45 minutes, provided a great overview of the intelligence process and would undoubtedly benefit individuals working in both the private and public sectors.  The lecture begins with a 50,000 foot overview of intelligence; discusses strategic and tactical types of intelligence; and reviews components of the process such as data collection, evaluation and collation methods.  I found the data description methods discussion particularly interesting; who doesn’t love a good scatter diagram?

As an advocate of lifelong learning, Anacapa’s training module to be informative, quick and the right price- FREE; these days that’s the trifecta of training.
