Actionable information sources

In order to stay on top in today's mutable market place, the competitive business must be aware of and be prepared to take advantage of the best internal and external information available.

Ideally, there should be a coordinated group effort in your organization that searches, sifts, filters, and handles information sources using internally developed criteria with the objective of making sense (connecting the dots) of good ideas that will improve the organization's agenda.

In reality, most businesses have no central group to cultivate and apply ideas across the organization. Ideas slip through the cracks. Opportunities, lost.
