Intelligence reports or reports are fundamental pillars in the decision-making structure within an organization. These meticulously crafted reports not only collect data but, more critically, analyze it to extract patterns, risks, opportunities and conclusions. Their nature can vary, from daily reports to quarterly or annual reports.

In the corporate sphere, an intelligence report may contain a competitive analysis, where the activities, product launches, strategic changes and financial statements of competitors are investigated. These reports can also cover risk assessments, anticipating challenges such as economic fluctuations, regulatory changes or geopolitical events that may affect the organization.

One of the most valuable characteristics of a good intelligence report is its ability to not only present data, but also provide context, interpretation, and recommendations. For example, a report may identify that a competitor has entered a new market and suggest possible reasons, implications for the company itself, and recommended strategies in response.
