Teaching Competitive Intelligence and Cyberwarfare in a Business Context

ABSTRACT

Competitive intelligence has risen in profile over the past decade to become a key contributor to the survival of organizations operating in highly competitive environments. It is seen as an essential management tool in the current global marketplace. Several authors claim there is a need for the inclusion of competitive intelligence in Masters level studies however the area is rarely included in educational programs offered by tertiary institutions. This paper describes a course in competitive intelligence and cyberwarfare offered within IT-related Masters programs at Curtin University. The dominant teaching tool used is scenario work simulating realistic organizational situations incorporating competitive intelligence and cyberwarfare activities.
