6 Competitive Intelligence Techniques to Consider | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it

Getting to know your competition is a must before developing any business or marketing strategy.

Today, however, with online “footprints in the sand” left all over the web, getting competitive intelligence is easier than ever. Here are six ways you can gather competitive intelligence about your competitors

Protect Your Business From Competitive Intelligence

Protect Your Business From Competitive Intelligence | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it

The term "competitive intelligence" is the process of legally gathering information about one's competitors to gain a strategic advantage in the marketplace. Large corporations will have strategic intelligence experts as a part of their marketing department. These experts specialize in discovering promotional activities, sales figures, and other information about the company's competitors. Ideally, strong competitive intelligence enables a company to predict the strategy of a competitor and adapt with a strategy of its own that will result in an advantage in the marketplace. The good news is that small and medium-sized businesses are not usually the targets of professional competitive intelligence experts. However, a business owner would be wise to protect itself from amateur intelligence gathering by its competitors. Competitive intelligence gathering begins by identifying the strategy of your own business and how your competitor's strategy will interfere. Then the intelligence gathering begins.


Via Bonnie Hohhof
Ellen Naylor's insight:

Much of competitive intelligence focuses on the acquisition, analysis and dissemination of data. For example: How do you control social media sharing and disgruntled employees?  What steps do you take to protect your company's sensitive information?

To Win People Over, Speak to Their Wants and Needs

To Win People Over, Speak to Their Wants and Needs | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it

Practicing empathy can be difficult, because you have to step outside your comfort zone to understand someone else’s point of view. But it’s essential to exercising influence. Whether you’re trying to get your team on board with a new way of working, asking investors to fund you, persuading customers to buy your product, or imploring the public to donate to your cause, your success depends on your ability to grasp the wants and needs of the people around you.  If people feel listened to, they become more receptive to your message. And by doing the listening, you become more informed about what they really need — not just what you think they need — which will fuel your relationships with stakeholders over the long run.


Via Bonnie Hohhof
Ellen Naylor's insight:

In the stress of work, we often forget that other people's needs are so important to connection and cooperation. Tune in to other's needs and figure out their motivation. Listen closely to their words, what they don't say and their tone.  If I am on the phone, I take notes to help listen. I find having good eye contact helps when I have the luxury of an in-person conversation.


What are ways that you use to listen better?

How One Simple Change Can Make You A Better Listener

How One Simple Change Can Make You A Better Listener | cooperative intelligence | Scoop.it
It sounds easy, but it's surprisingly hard for most of us: To become a better listener, stop focusing on what you'll say next.

Via Anne Leong
Ellen Naylor's insight:

Excellent article on listening, which will give you a competitive advantage regardless of your profession. Effective listeners put themselves in a thinking mindset. This gives you a chance to really try to understand what is going on around you. Taking the thinking perspective is the conversational equivalent of the carpenter’s saying "Measure twice, cut once." The ability to extract what people mean from a conversation is one of the most important attributes of any leader. It requires curbing your natural tendency to jump right to a solution to people’s problems.
