CI provides the means to gather and process information into intelligence that is necessary to understand the competition and the external environment. It is the process of monitoring the competitive environment in an organised and systematic way. It is a continuous process involving only the legal and ethical collection of information, analysis and controlled dissemination of actionable intelligence to decision-makers concerning their competitors.
