Diploma in intelligence analysis

Diploma in Intelligence Analysis

  • 2003 - 2004

  • Interdepartmental SGB

  • How we would like analysts to be & what they should be able to do

  • Integrating profile, job descriptions and competencies

  • Fundamental, core and elective unit standards (modules)


The harsh reality

The Harsh Reality

✖ Lack of political leadership to enforce

✖ No uptake @ gov schools (lack of capacity, disinterest)

✖ SETA’s incompetence discredits system

✔ 1st time all agreed on intel terminology

✔ The process has been more important than the outcome


Personal journey

Personal journey …


Approach to intelligence analysis

Approach to Intelligence Analysis

  • Broader, integrative Decision-support function rather than secret state function

  • Turning data/information into actionable knowledge

  • Applicable to all spheres where sense has to be made of myriad of conflicting, sometimes deceptive information to enable decision-making


Looking for an academic home

Looking for an academic home…

  • Unique challenges in SA

  • Looking at the How (IA) rather than What (Intelligence Studies)

  • Universities’ attitude towards Intel

Interdisciplinary

Interdisciplinary?

  • Interdisciplinarity : transfer of methods from one discipline to another


Multidisciplinary

Multidisciplinary?

Overflows disciplinary boundaries while its goal remains limited to the framework of disciplinary research

A steak is a steak..


Transdisciplinarity

Transdisciplinarity

“pooling of disciplinary knowledge and information, technological revolutions, and the creation of networks and new forms of knowledge”  (Kleiber 2002)


Transdisciplinarity1

Transdisciplinarity

Attempts to approach the object of study beyond and across disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives

Prismatic learning in practice


Application

Application

  • What can one achieve in a week?

    • Cognitive dissonance – no mans land – journey towards self awareness & mindfulness

  • Complex, multi-dimensional case study

  • Collaboration

  • Puzzles


Lessons learnt

Lessons learnt

  • It’s actually about LEARNING, not training or education.

  • “Standards” should be signposts not straightjackets

  • Don’t be fixated on what makes intelligence special (?) – it alienates

  • Y-generation: plugged-in rather than degreed

  • By “stealth” rather than “big bang”


Future for intelligence learning

Future for intelligence learning

  • Conduct intelligence!

  • Break the silo’s and ingrained mindsets

  • Stay in the flow! Stay relevant!

  • Strengthen lifelong learning perspective

  • Broadening the scope


The future now knowledge workers

The future (now?): knowledge workers


Prismatic research on

Prismatic Research on:

  • Decision-making/Intelligence/intelligence management in complexity and uncertainty (Mittleton-Kelly, Bennets)

  • Sensemaking (Karl Weick, Devlin)

  • 3rd generation KM: knowledge transfer, story-telling, Cynefin, trust culture, collaboration

  • Chaos theory – Zimbabwe? South Africa?
