    Strategic Intelligence Analysis is a two-level e-learning course, designed for professionals working in public sector enforcement, intelligence, national security, and regulatory compliance roles, or those aspiring to do so.  Using a combination of online lesson materials and applied learning scenarios, the course provides an understanding and hands-on appreciation of the concepts, principles, and methods that inform strategic analysis tasks.  Students will be equipped with the skills and knowledge required to effectively conceive, plan, and implement strategic analysis projects, and deliver impactful strategic advice to clients and other end users.

    Strategic analysis is an intelligence-driven “enabler,” making significant contributions to the higher-end of an organization’s client base.  That is to say, when the strategic analysis program is properly implemented, senior officials will benefit from intelligence products that are geared towards the shaping of strategies, policies, and plans, and development of insights to facilitate the management of corporate risk.  Strategic analysis clients and end users can benefit from assessments that “map” the external threat environment, provide warning of emerging threats and strategic problems, and provide viable options for risk mitigation.
