IA103 Introduction to Strategic Intelligence Analysis
February 22, 2024 @ 8:30 am - 6:00 pm
Delivery Method: Virtual
Duration: 1 Day
Time: 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM Eastern
This course introduces analysts to the historical context of strategic analysis through broader concepts of thinking and analyzing more strategic aspects. A key component of modern analytical investigations is the ability to collect and analyze multiple data sets and information sources to generate a holistic product. Introduction to Strategic Intelligence Analysis (ISIA) expands on the basic principles of strategic analysis explored in the Foundations of Intelligence Analysis Training (FIAT) while building a framework for real-world application and broader occupational contexts.
Key concepts covered in this course include:
• Understanding the process of strategic analysis
• Current trends
• Collecting, collating, and analyzing multiple sources of data
Note: Some of the concepts covered in ISIA are also covered in NW3C’s four-day FIAT instruction; therefore, some of the material in ISIA can be duplicative for prior FIAT students.
Successful completion of this ISIA course in conjunction with the successful completion of IA 101 Foundations of Intelligence Analysis Training will count towards the basic 40 hour intelligence analysis course required to enter IALEIA’s Professional Certification Program.
