Our introductory course to intelligence analysis provides a solid introduction to the art and science of analytic reasoning. Participants will be given the foundational knowledge needed to establish and grow their analytic toolkit. Attention is given to descriptive and predictive modes of analysis, and the complimentary skills of trend identification, pattern detection, evidential reasoning, and ideation. The guidance provided by this course offers an essential prelude to our more advanced courses.
Day 1: Issue identification
This three-day course will demonstrate how to generate strategic and operational intelligence from social media sources. Participants will be shown how to collect, process, and analyse social medial intelligence (SOCMINT) from a variety of networks and platforms. Further, they will be shown how to identify and monitor specific voices, issues and conversations. Finally, they will be shown how to conduct rigorous people investigations using a broad range of social media services.
Day 1: Mining Social Networks
Our Advanced Intelligence Analysis course looks to extend the toolkit provided in our introductory program. Participants will learn how to identify and explore multiple lines of analytic enquiry, most notably via the Analysis of Competing Hypothesis. Next, they will be shown how to identify practical solutions to the issues they are dealing with using prescriptive models such as roadmapping and cost-benefit analysis. The course ends by showing analysts how to critique the work of their peers and manage the cognitive biases common to all professionals.
