Abstract:

This report discusses the development of the Handbook for Strategic Intelligence Analysis that is currently being used as part of a training program for analysts at the U.S. Army Intelligence and Threat Analysis Center ITAC. The handbook grew out of a recognised need to provide analysts with improved support and training to deal with ever increasing amounts of complex information. The first step toward addressing this concern was a research program to evaluate and describe the cognitive processes that underlie analysis, synthesis, and production. The research finding were then applied to the development of training materials for intelligence analysts, including the handbook presented here. Keywords Analysis Cognitive model Conceptual models.
