Delegate Comments:

“The workshop in December was extremely valuable and as a result of the experience I was able to place some of the organisational development issues we’re facing at Durham Constabulary into a different context. We’re currently faced with a major restructure including a re-think about our approach to organisational intelligence. I’m involved in scoping the requirement for a new directorate which pulls together all of the elements involved in managing our intelligence processes. The workshop helped me to more clearly understand the scope and scale of this challenge and the corporate implications across all of our service areas.” - Paul Unsworth, Durham Constabulary


"Do you care if your organisation is intelligent? If you do and are in UK, attend one of Richard's seminars on organisational intelligence." - Carmen A. Medina former CIA Director for the Center for the Study of Intelligence


"I found this course to contain a high density of interesting, useful and new ideas from a teacher who has some depth. I would recommend it to people interested in improving their organisation." - Tom Gilb, Teacher, Author & Consultant
