Advanced Intelligence Analysis –

This week, we learn from two authors, differing views on how to leverage research, enterprise, and societal activities for successful intelligence analysis.The Hall reading for this week takes a bit of a departure from the predictable. He focuses in anomaly and tendency analysis discussion on the small details associated with human behavior which is an incredibly challenging task. Hall attempts to provide some clear examples of how to track behavior and establish the norms to anticipating a better understanding of the situation and changes that might not have been seen otherwise. From what you read, this is easier said than done and focusing on key issue requires a steady hand to determine what is “normal” and what is not.Clark talks about the target-centric approach and focuses on what the target is. He favors an approach that identifies the target and how to describe and focus on it. He goes on to provide a template/process for establishing a target, the center, and its most successful way to understand and describe it.Because no one way is the best, the analyst has to make a decision and then stand by it. For this power point presentation, you are an analyst who is scheduled to address your peers in an upcoming symposium where the two authors’ views will be discussed.Choosing one of the authors’ viewpoints, create a PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following in 10-15 slides:Choose an event in history where intelligence analysis failed, but do not use 9/11Explain and use which author’s views you chose and discuss the issues and challenges associated with intelligence analysis that may have led to the failure in your exampleIn your opinion, please cite specific examples from your event where lessons learned in the type of intelligence failure could be or has been a driving force for changes in intelligence policyTie all of this together for a final assessment of success if you were in charge and had to do it all over againYour analysis is limited only by your imagination.*PowerPoint will be turned in to the professor via the Blackboard Assignment system. Students will not present their work to their fellow students.*
