Competitive Intelligence Spotlight #25: Benjamin Gilad on His Academy’s CI Instruction, Data Analysis for Impact

TYSONS CORNER, VA, September 29, 2020 — ArchIntel is pleased to unveil the 25th in a series of interviews with Competitive Intelligence and GovCon executives who share their insights about creating and sustaining a competitive advantage.

Benjamin Gilad, founder and president of the Academy of Competitive Intelligence, spoke to ArchIntel about his teaching method to help professionals learn how to make impact investment decisions and his perspective on CI practices within the defense industry, as well as intelligence data analysis and utilization approaches.

“Defense is lightyears ahead on competitive intelligence because it’s embedded in the culture. When every contract is the size of the gross national product of an African country, you must have intelligence embedded within the company and contract. Defense is ahead of any other industry, but it doesn’t mean they do it right.”
