ArchIntel: What is a competitive intelligence analyst’s approach and set of goals?

“I always start with the customer. I want to understand, since we’re competing against our competitors for the buyers’ dollars, the strategic intent of the customer because that will determine the approach that all of us take and it’s our job to determine how a competitor is going to interpret the same data that we have to interpret. First and foremost, we want to understand the customer.”
