Competitive Intelligence: An Emerging Practice at Professional Services Firms

We are proud to announce that one of SMPS Tampa Bay's own members, Ann Schiola of FINLEY Engineering Group and member of the SMPS Tampa Bay advisory board, has written an article about competitive intelligence for SMPS's monthly print publication, Marketer. The article contains many useful insights and a study conducted by Schiola herself with charts to illustrate her findings.

Competitive intelligence is about the future and can help a firm proactively forecast events."
