Competitive Futures clients will gain priority access to Aurora's industry-diverse menu of strategic intelligence research and analysis capabilities covering more than 80 countries worldwide. Shared clients will also benefit from Aurora's new learning, training and development offerings, led by the legendary scholar of intelligence analysis, Dr. Craig S.

Competitive Futures offers advice to business and government on competitive strategy, economic development and opportunity assessment to equip decision-makers with technology foresight, future customer profiling, competitive positioning and investment due diligence needed to act with greater confidence. The application of Competitive Futures professional services have grown in importance as global competition, accelerating rates of industry change and conditions of intense operational uncertainty have become the norm.

As the firm moves in the direction of further elevating this profession through analytical training, events and media production, we could not be more excited to be official partners of Aurora.”
Aurora WDC CEO Derek Johnson added, “We’ve worked together with Eric and his team at Competitive Futures for years now to build the Intelligence Collaborative with the goal of uniting the analytical profession. As Aurora WDC moves into the vitally important intelligence education space, we are excited to partner with Competitive Futures as the world’s leading firm in training executives in the area of foresight.”
The leaders of both companies will appear together at the Special Libraries Association (SLA) conference in Philadelphia, June 12-15, where the theme of "Future-Ready" has become a central priority on the agenda of information centers, corporate libraries and strategic knowledge professionals worldwide.
