The book has a second volume – The Strategic Analysis Cycle: Toolbook – that is due out this summer.
The event was attended by professionals in competitive and market intelligence from all over the world, together with Erik’s colleagues from FrieslandCampina. AartJan van Triest (Chief Marketing Officer of Friesland Campina) set the scene by speaking about the importance of strategic analysis and competitive intelligence to keep ahead of a company’s competitors. Erik hoped, in this data-driven world, that his book would provide a practical guide not just to collecting, analyzing and managing data, but also to communicating data and insights to decision-makers, to ensure that insights are not only being unearthed but also being acted upon. Erik then presented the first copy of the book to Bas van den Berg, Chief Operating Officer (Cheese, Butter & Milk Powder) and member of the Executive Board of FrieslandCampina. The evening ended with Erik spending close to two hours signing his book and receiving the warm wishes of his fellow professionals and colleagues.
