The Massachusetts chapter of Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP) presents a free-wheeling discussion of practical CI ideas at its Wednesday, September 19 meeting from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at the Charles Stark Draper Laboratory in Cambridge MA.
· How chapter colleagues and leading practitioners approach CI issues.
· Questions and issues on how to manage and deliver CI better.
· How to share ideas without the fuss of a formal presentation.
Join competitive intelligence thought leaders and fellow practitioners for the first CIdea Fest. Hear practical ideas from leading practitioners and chapter colleagues on how they have faced competitive intelligence challenges, learned what works and what doesn’t, implemented novel approaches and solutions, foster creativity and more.
The CIdea Fest featured discussion leaders include Nannette Bulger, member of the SCIP Board of Directors, and Jennifer Swanson, two-time past member of the SCIP Board of Directors. Both will briefly present their topic, followed by discussions and the opportunity to share and answer questions.
