Competitive Intelligence

Gaining strategic competitive advantage


With rising globalisation and advances in technology, competitive intensity has grown across almost every category in the past 10 years. It’s not just enough to worry about what you and your business are doing. Whether you are a market leader looking to maintain share or a smaller player wanting to grow, knowing as much information as possible about your competitors should be a central component of any type of strategy development process.


A data-driven approach

In gathering competitive intelligence we use a range of data sources, depending on your specific needs:

  • Secondary analysis - Identifying, gathering and analysing data that already exists on markets and competitors.

  • Expert interviews - Interviews with industry experts such as journalists, academics and industry associations.

  • Supply chain interviews - Interviews with organisations that form part of the supply chain such as suppliers, distributors, agents and other intermediaries.

  • Mystery shopping - Executing a shopping scenario with brands in your category to measure quality of service and/or gather specific information about products and services.


We then analyse and synthesise this information to provide you with a clearer understanding of how you can gain competitive advantage for your business and your brand.
