We have worked in marketing, sales, research and competitive analysis for over 30 years, so we have developed some key alliances in these businesses. We continue to grow our network through connections at SCIP, The Council of CI Fellows, AIIP, and SLA, as well as through our extensive social media reach, especially LinkedIn and Twitter.
As the lead at The Business Intelligence Source, Ellen hires alliance partners to help with projects. Our alliance partners also hire us for project work. Ellen hired and managed consulting firms in her corporate days, so she gets how to work with alliance partners.
Through our alliances, we meet client’s full-service needs for research, elicitation, win loss analysis, market opportunity analysis, and corporate competitive intelligence process development and transition.
We make you this promise: If we cannot complete your project in-house, we work with or refer clients to one of our alliance consultants.

We have relationships with some 20 US-based firms. We bring seasoned consultants into our projects based on their particular expertise.
