The 2008 Pharma "Competitive Intelligence" Conference

Now this should be an interesting meeting.

The 2008 Pharma Competitive Intelligence (CI) Conference on Sept. 15-17 in New Jersey.

"This is one of the best and largest gathering of pharma Competitive Intelligence professionals".

Who is speaking?
Here is a sampling of the many pharma speakers:
  • Monika Giese, Head Global Competitive Intelligence, Novartis Pharma AG
  • Jerry Hoffman, Manager-Global Competitive Intelligence Strategy, Eli Lilly & Co.
  • Daniel Pascheles, Vice President, Global Competitive Intelligence, Merck
  • Renee Pierson, Global Intelligence Leader, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Services
  • Chandra Ramanathan, Director, Global Business and Competitive Intelligence, Bristol-Myers Squibb
  • Craig McHenry, Senior Director, Competitor Insights, Wyeth
What is competitive intelligence?
We don't really want to explain, but probably stuff that interferes with honest science and honest people. Perhaps spying and some bullying. Perhaps things like:Is this ethical?
See The Ethics of Competitive Intelligence

If we are competing, why are we all there?
Depends who we are competing with

So who is the competition?
Proponents of the doctrine that black is black.

Please explain?
"There was a society of men among us,
bred from their youth in the art of proving,
by word multiplied for the purpose,
that white is black and black is white
according to how they are paid".
Jonathan Swift

I don't like the way that the word "intelligence" gets thrown around. I think it's inappropriate.
