Opportunities and Threats Reports

We all strive to be prepared for exciting business opportunities that come our way, but we also want to know about any threats waiting for us just over the horizon. No one likes being taken by surprise, especially when it could have been identified and avoided.

Unfortunately, many organizations don’t have the right skill set or resources to locate the necessary information to strategically plan for future growth.

With its unique combination of strategic foresight and competitive intelligence methodologies, Connect Public Affairs can help you better plan for the future, whatever it may bring.

Today’s Information Realities

There once was a time when it was difficult to locate information about your organization’s competitive environment. This is certainly not today’s reality. In fact, today there is often too much information for an organization to assess. Added to this, it takes a particular talent to find the right information, distill that information into actionable intelligence and then to effectively utilize this intelligence for better decision-making and strategic planning.

The overwhelming amount of information that we take in daily can be mind boggling. Are we getting the most accurate and relevant information we need to make insightful decisions? What happens if you miss an important event or transaction that could negatively impact your organization?
