When it comes to competitive intelligence, collecting hard data like published reports and datasets may be easier than tracking down less quantifiable information. But is it as useful? In Part 1 of this two part article, Vernon Prior discusses the value of soft data collection in the competitive intelligence gathering process and introduces three techniques for uncovering it.

What's Inside:

Elicitation also relies upon the fact that we all wish to appear well-informed and, as a result, we tend to reveal more than we should. Most of us are keen to be regarded as honest and trustworthy; we welcome praise or sympathy; and we dislike adverse criticism. These are all human frailties that may be exploited to advantage.
