About this blog


This blog is your place to learn about competitive intelligence (CI), even, no especially, if you are not a CI professional. I want this to be a place where you can learn about CI to enhance your career and improve your business.

Who am I? My name is John McGonagle, and I have been involved with CI for over 30 years. I have won major awards for CI, lectured in over a dozen countries, consulted for large and small enterprises, and, with my partner, Carolyn Vella, am the most published author on CI.

Our latest book, Proactive Intelligence: The Successful Executive’s Guide to Intelligence, is the first step in our effort to bring CI to every manager and executive, whether in marketing, sales, planning, law, accounting, or human resources. And we know it is a tool that can be used by all enterprises, from the very smallest law office to the largest business or corporation.

We are now working on a new book, to be released Spring 2017. It will advance the effort to make sure that CI is done right the first time.

I will post short blogs once a week. If you have suggestions, please post them here.
