Structured Analytic Techniques for Intelligence


Sorry, registration has ended.

This course provides an in-depth look at Structured AnalyticTechniques (SATs) for intelligence analysis. Analysts face many obstacles in developing intelligence, some of which are introduced through human mindsets and biases. Mindsets and biases further complicate the analysis process and often impact an analyst's judgement. SATs are a series of analytic techniques that help reduce mindset related problems with analysis and provide for a structured and organized process for evaluating and analyzing intelligence. The results are more accurate analysis, a way for an analyst to validate evidence, assumptions and analytic leaps and show how an analyst came to a certain judgement.
