Cooperative intelligence is sharing and caring without expecting something in return as in collaboration. You give to give. That's the intention here: give relevant business tips in primary research, competitive intelligence, market intelligence and elicitation.

Arming Management Through Competitive Intelligence Programs

Arming Management Through Competitive Intelligence Programs | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it
The basic meaning of a competitive intelligence program is the procurement of information about the products or services provided by a company for the purpose of educating the hierarchy who make up the administration of that company. This type of program also provides managers and executives with information regarding their competitors so as to increase their understanding of the market. It enables them to be able to effectively answer questions asked by employees and customers.

Approximately 9 out of 10 customers would rather pay more than to give their business to a company with which they have not had a good customer experience.

How Artificial Intelligence Will Redefine Management

Many alarms have sounded on the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to upend the workforce, especially for easy-to-automate jobs. But managers at all levels will have to adapt to the world of smart machines. The fact is, artificial intelligence will soon be able to do the administrative tasks that consume much of managers’ time faster, better, and at a lower cost.

How can managers — from the front lines to the C-suite — thrive in the age of AI? To find out, we surveyed 1,770 managers from 14 countries and interviewed 37 executives in charge of digital transformation at their organizations. Using this data, we identified five practices that successful managers will need to master.

Leading in a World Without Secrets

It means we are moving into an era in which every company and organization must expect that secrets will get out. You cannot afford defenses that will fully protect you. Consistent with the philosophy espoused in HBR way back in 2003 in the article The Myth of Secure Computing, business leaders will need to decide which of their information assets are so valuable that they want to invest a lot to protect them, and which they can’t afford to protect vigorously. The realistic expectation for the number of secrets that will leak every year from any company will be greater than zero.

How should leaders adjust? There are two ways to prepare for the possibility of people trying to get at your secrets. You can protect them better (which, as already stated, might get expensive). Or you can act to minimize the consequences of leakage.

In our world of public misinformation, secrets leak out, which might contain a grain of truth, that you don't want exposed.

Use This Five-Part Checklist To Tell If You're Overcommunicating

Use This Five-Part Checklist To Tell If You're Overcommunicating | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it

There’s definitely some truth in the wisdom that it’s better to overcommunicate than undercommunicate. Ideally, every manager gives their team members just enough direction to get on course and the leeway to do their thing free of micromanagement.

 

The reality is often different, though. No good boss wants to leave their teams feeling empty-handed or unsupported, so they sometimes veer off too far in the opposite direction. I’ve learned the hard way that overcommunication is easier to fall into than you might think, and it winds up obfuscating my message and wasting everyone’s time.

 

Fortunately, I’ve managed to get better at figuring out when my communication is more distracting than useful. Here are some of the key criteria I use in order to tell whether I'm overcommunicating

Overcomunication can sometimes be ineffective communication. repetitive and redundant information has the tendency to fall on deaf ears. I have learnt this the hard way while teaching senior students in school! Students 'zone out' when they listen to information that is repetitive, resulting in 'overcommunication!' Professionals, especially in leadership positions can avoid the curse of overcommunication by taking care about the timing of the communication, ensuring that it is not redundant, examining its value, and ensuring that it is coherent, according to the the writer.

The Study of Intelligence

The Study of Intelligence | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it

AFIO’s Guide has been in the works for 6 years, and that kind of work shows. The book is a comprehensive and extremely readable look at the entire subject of intelligence and at teaching about it. It is not restricted to governmental intelligence – it is much broader than that, although many of its contributors are former government intelligence community members. This is a review of AFIO’s Guide to the Study of Intelligence, Peter C. Oleson, Editor. Association of Former Intelligence Officers, Falls Church, VA, afio.com, 2016, 740 pages, $95.00.

Ellen Naylor's insight:

I have been talking about cooperative intelligence since 2006.

Cooperative Intelligence puts people in the center. Its foundation is a giving attitude and practices which encourage openness, sharing and trust. Trust begins with communication, telling the truth, and doing what is good for people and the organization. When people trust you, they often will do what you ask them to do since they want to.

Cooperative intelligence integrates cooperative leadership, cooperative connection, and cooperative communication. Cooperative intelligence can be applied in any functional area of a company and in any industry.
