Intelligence Analysis

Intelligence analysis is necessary for providing threat warnings.

Intelligence analysis is necessary for reducing uncertainty and risk.

Intelligence analysis is necessary for maximising opportunity.

Develop your team’s intellectual firepower and enable them to go beyond the collection of information and learn how to interpret, derive meaning and actionable insights from a variety of open sources.


Each phase of the course is practical, and designed to challenge experienced analysts, promote teamwork, and encourage the voices of junior analysts.


This is a course without the need for computers, and one that enables participants to think deeply, creatively and purposefully to better reach the strategic objectives of their organisation.


Participants will be introduced to principles of intelligence analysis in an open-source context, applicable to business and government. They will also learn about the role and purpose of open-source intelligence and how the processing and analysis of information becomes intelligence​.


The course will also teach participants how to:

  • identify and evaluate sources of information​

  • think critically about intelligence and business problems​

  • identify and apply appropriate structured analytical techniques to best address those problems.


The course is only available to be delivered in-person by our very experienced staff coming from Australia’s National Intelligence Community and is designed around a 4-day curriculum.
