A Wicked Problem Approach to Intelligence Challenges Panel
The global intelligence landscape is undergoing multiple fundamental shifts simultaneously. To name but a few: new forms of “actors” and “combatants” across all parts of the global stage; technologies that now allow previously unimaginable widespread and immediate connections among individuals and entities; “movements” that can spread across national borders in a short timeframe; new forms of alliances and partnerships among widely different entities (such as political parties, countries, NGOs, activist local groups, etc.). Many intelligence leaders have recommended that new approaches to intelligence must be developed to detect and monitor the intelligence landscape but especially in “analysis and assessment”. The intent of this session is to demonstrate the applicability of a wicked problem orientation to the analysis of intelligence challenges
