Intelligence dissemination (alpha = 0.75)Edit

  • Marketing personnel in our business unit spend time discussing customers' future needs with other functional departments.
  • Our business unit periodically circulates documents (e.g., reports, newsletters) that provide information on our customers.
  • We have cross-functional meetings very often to discuss market trends and developments (e.g., customers, competition, suppliers).
  • We regularly have interdepartmental meetings to update our knowledge of regulatory requirements.
  • Technical people in the business unit spend a lot of time sharing information about technology for new products with other departments.
  • Market information spreads quickly through all levels in this business unit.
