Analyst Training: Writing, Analysis, and Preparing Briefings – November 1-2, 2017

Dr. Mark Lowenthal, internationally recognized expert on intelligence and author of Intelligence: From Secrets to Policy, teaches this two-day course designed for students to begin developing analytic skills for any intelligence-related or analytical function. This course examines the role of intelligence in the policy process (within government or business), then offers an introduction to analytic skills, beginning with critical thinking and reading, writing analysis, and preparing and presenting successful briefings. Much of what is required for good analytical writing takes place before the analyst actually begins to write.  The scoping and planning of the intelligence analysis therefore are major areas of emphasis in this course, as well as issues of format, length, word selection, etc.  This course is designed to get analysts off to a good start in as little time as possible, recognizing that there are important time constraints in such training and that much will also be learned on the job.
