This chapter discusses why it is useful to have a model of intelligence to help guide structures, processes, and the deployment of resources. It examines a simple security intelligence model, applicable to any scale of deployment and explores aspects of a common dedicated countercrime model. Security Intelligence Decision Advantage Research Model, as an approach, can be embedded in any intelligence team. Even one person for whom intelligence consumes just a fraction of their time can make use of it. Direction is both the start and end point of the intelligence cycle. Effective analysis relies to a large extent on the individual’s mindset and the processes in place, which allow the analyst to overcome inherent limitations. The dissemination stage is when material gets sent to the client. Timeliness and accuracy are important at this stage; relevancy and “actionability” should have been covered by having good intelligence requirements, sources, and collection plans.
