6 Understand, compete and grow - page 6 Market intelligence Market Intelligence helps organizations understand their business environment, compete successfully in it, and grow as a result. Market Intelligence collects information about market players and strategically relevant topics and processes it into insights that support decision-making. Organizationally, Market Intelligence is typically placed under strategic planning, business development or marketing. Terms such as competitor analysis, technology analysis or customer insights are often used under the overarching term Market Intelligence. Market Intelligence should be seen synonymous with concepts such as Competitive Intelligence and Business Intelligence. Competitive landscape Market and industry Voice of customers Plans are usually based on knowledge, data, gut feeling and experience Critical decisions without sufficient information, e.g. entering a new market During recessions, budgets of market intelligence are often cut at the time when risks and needs for intelligence are on rise Market intelligence makes decisions safer

7 The quality of executive decision-making leaves plenty of room for improvement… An Economist Intelligence Unit study says that… …61% of executives (72% in large firms) characterize management decision-making at their firms as moderately efficient or worse …less than 10% of executives have information when they need it … 46% assert that wading through huge volumes of data serves to slow decisions...56% are often concerned about making poor choices because of faulty, inaccurate or incomplete data EIU: “In search of clarity: Unravelling the complexities of executive decision-making”, Sep 2007 - page 7

8 Business environment is getting increasingly complex and dynamic - page 8
