This foundational course teaches students to analyze, prioritize and
fully understand requests for information (RFIs), and create a
research plan that keeps their efforts on track.
Students will learn to uncover stakeholder intent so
intelligence analysis can be actioned. They will gain the ability to
fully interpret implicit and explicit RFIs by identifying relevant
context from intelligence requirements, organizational threat
profiles, and key stakeholder analysis.
They will also learn how to use a research management system to
organize research and avoid information overload, and assess source
relevance and trust to ensure efficient and focused collections efforts.
