We participated in Jan Černý’s Competitive Intelligence (CI) workshop in October 2018. During the intensive and well-prepared day we learned the theoretical fundamentals of CI. Then we practised search methods in open and closed information sources on tasks specifically tailored for our company needs. Jan solved our questions professionally, and remotely helped set up alert services weeks after the workshop. We were very grateful for the whole course, its content and form. It helped us to gain information about activity in the market.
