This Best-Practice Report is the result of a multiclient benchmarking study that identified and examined best practices in using science and technology intelligence (STI) to drive business results. The goal of the study was to enable participants to identify performance gaps or opportunities for improvement by comparing their own STI programs to other STI programs. Building on its successful predecessors and conducted in partnership with the Society of Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP), this study focused on four areas in science and technology intelligence:

1. the justification and role of science and technology intelligence in driving
business results;

2. processes and techniques to collect, prioritize, analyze, and utilize science and technology intelligence across the organization;

3. storing technology intelligence and facilitating its distribution; and

4. measuring and analyzing successful science and technology intelligence programs.

Seventeen organizations participated in the consortium learning forum by
attending a series of planning sessions, completing data-gathering surveys, and/or attending or hosting on-site interviews. READ MORE >
