Description

This course introduces the five core categories of structured analysis and incorporates individual structured analytic tools. Structured analytic techniques are scientifically-derived tools that analysts can use to abstract their biases out of their own analysis and can also be used to gain insight into the meaning and value of large sets of information. Through the use of these techniques, the analyst is able to provide better accuracy, relevancy and substance to their intelligence reporting.
