The current world is being impacted by a series of changes that are occurring at an unprecedented rate. This is a true paradigm shift in which the vision and projection strategies, tactics and operations are severely affected by many unforeseen social, economic, cultural, technological and political events. The environment, where companies interact with organizations and institutions, is substantially different from what has been known before and has to face intense changes from all areas, strongly amalgamated related demographic field, the system of principles and values, production systems, educational systems, labor systems and social protection, global competition, science and technology, energy resources, geo-box political and economic, etc.
In this respect, it has been shown that the functions of prevention, early, early warning and early assessments of threats, risks and opportunities are the main functional strategic attitudes that seek to improve individual and organizational performance in complex and uncertain environments, with highly critical factors and to develop strategies that reflect reality, but which allow the production of high value-added results to facilitate effective and efficient decision making.
This impact is most notable in the areas of senior management where processes are required to be fully appropriate, rigorous, and transparent and with credible decisions due to the increasing demands of citizens, customers and the general public. In this situation, the resource information has become not only commoditized, but has also implied the need for specific methodology for their production, processing and distribution, as previously established goals, in order to build future scenarios, anticipate conflicts potential and critical situations, assess future threats, reduce risks, identify early warning indicators and identify future opportunities, which are the basic elements of what we call intelligence.
Strategic intelligence has a proactive nature. It is produced as part of the vision of what is possible and desirable. The finding and discovering of opportunities in difficulties, creating added value and calculating risks based on recognizing that technology is an element that not always guarantees success. Dimensions are components of international strategic intelligence, among others, the geographical, sociological, political, economic, identity, technology, individual leadership, etc.
In this context, formal skills, acquired by the managers in relation to the management of global strategic intelligence, gain great relevance facing the exclusivity of information technology, with the need to have a trained professionals to analyze information visually as well as a strategic direction in business administration.
