In an age of overwhelming misinformation, disinformation, deception, and propaganda, critical and logical thinking skills are more essential than ever to determine fact-from-fiction, and ultimately make the best possible decisions. While we are called upon to use our critical and logical thinking skills on a daily basis, most of us are simply not good at it — we are all subject to a range of biases and thinking mistakes that we may not be aware of; traditional “common sense” is just not enough.
A curriculum like no other, developed with over two decades of training delivery and development experience in both the investigative and operational intelligence spheres, this internationally acclaimed course will provide the essential skills required to accurately assess our expanding information landscape, in order to get closer to the truth and produce high-quality, accurate, intelligence products.
Utilizing an engaging experiential learning approach to critical thinking, and incorporating an Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) focus, attendees will learn how to deconstruct problems, ask the right questions, challenge assumptions, examine different viewpoints with greater clarity, and make better decisions more efficiently. This sought-after course will also introduce a number of case studies that highlight both successes and failures in real-world investigations, research projects, and intelligence operations to reinforce core training concepts.
