Chapter 9: Conclusion
Barnea’s book bridges the analytical gap between national and business intelligence by comparing intelligence failures of states and major corporations and their causes. Barnea convincingly shows how the corporate world could greatly benefit from a better understanding of national intelligence, its means and its analytical and forecast tools. This book is essential reading not only for intelligence scholars and students but also for managers who seek to gain advantage over the competition by better use of intelligence.— Shlomo Shpiro, Chairman, International Intelligence History Association
