This is rather timely…
SLA’s Click University just started offering three certificate programs in Competitive Intelligence. Obviously it’s a big deal these days in many types of libraries. Basic info below, more info on Click U’s website (http://www.clickuniversity.com/)…

Click University Competitive Intelligence Certificates

The Click University Competitive Intelligence Certificates Program in Partnership with Knowledge inForm is developed with consideration for the requirements of LIS professionals, SLA, effective and recognized intelligence practices, organizations practicing intelligence, and the professional development marketplace.

The development of this program takes into consideration the feedback and observations, and lessons learned conducting intelligence training for LIS and business professionals, best practices in intelligence training, best practices from other professional development programs, and feedback and trends from our intelligence consulting and training efforts.

The Programs
The Certificate in Competitive Intelligence for LIS Professionals is aimed at LIS professionals who are interested in transitioning into the intelligence function. The curriculum is designed to develop the competencies for holistic intelligence practice, from serving as an intelligence team member to managing the intelligence function within an organization.

The Certificate in Competitive Intelligence Information Function is designed for LIS professionals who wish to more effectively support research and information & knowledge services for intelligence effort or an intelligence function. The curriculum covers general CI knowledge, as well as the specific requirements for the LIS function within intelligence.

The Dual Certificate: Competitive Intelligence and the Intelligence Information Function accommodates LIS professionals who wish to take the most comprehensive approach toward their intelligence professional development. This certificate combines courses for both certificate programs, eliminating duplications and redundancies.
