Do you know the organizational structure of your competitors?  How much might these firms spend on R&D? How are they positioned for the future?

Such information is key to understanding the competition’s capabilities, priorities, and likely business strategies. The challenge is finding detailed information on small or non-public companies through traditional sources.

Scott Brown of Oracle will discuss strategies and techniques for deciphering the hierarchies and organization of smaller and non-public companies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what titles and organizational structure can tell you about a company.
  • Learn how to build knowledge of an organizational structure using open-source tools.
  • Discover new tools for organizational information.

Please join us for an informative presentation-and the opportunity to ask questions of an expert!
