TECHNIQUES OF INTELLIGENCE ANALYSIS Introduction Intelligence plays a fundamental role in reducing ambiguity for the decision makers. Intellectual analysts deal with problems such as incomplete information limitations of the human mind and transnational threats among others. Additionally the world is going through significant changes because of globalization resulting in the increase in diverse outcomes in as far as complex interactive systems are concerned. Intelligence analysts must therefore implement the use of individual and collective cognitive methods that work towards weighing data and testing hypothesis. Intelligence analysts must therefore ensure that they put into perspective the relevant elements under scrutiny to make the correct conclusions. This aims at reviewing some of the techniques of intelligence analysis including evaluating the contribution of critical thinking in ensuring that analysts make the correct conclusions. Intelligent analysis integrates the use of cognitive traps counterintelligence and analytic arguments employed for purposes of finding critical solutions integral in ensuring that they arrive at the best results. Critical thinking forms an integral part in as far as the structured analytical techniques used in solving problems of intelligence analysis are concerned. As such it plays a vital role in promoting the quality of decisions made when solving a problem. Bibliography Bose Ranjit. "Competitive intelligence process and tools for intelligence analysis."
