This book provides the essential tools needed for any decision maker or planner. Although this is specifically written with the intelligence community in mind, the techniques you will learn can be used by any manager.

This is an excellent book that gives experienced and beginner analysts structured techniques and concepts to improve the tradecraft of intelligence analysis. If you buy the book, keep near the desk, and, of course for the Kindle, its even easier to keep notes and highlights for reference.
