Sensemaking: A Structure for an Intelligence Revolution by David Moore

Sensemaking: A Structure for an Intelligence Revolution by David Moore

Sensemaking is the inaugural book in a new NDIC Press series titled, "The A. Denis Clift Series on the Intelligence Profession." The Clift Series will present original research on intelligence analysis and the teaching of intelligence.

In 2009, A. Denis Clift concluded a 50-year career with the federal government. Clift was president of the National Defense Intelligence College from 1994 to 2009 and was instrumental in creating the Center for Strategic Intelligence Research, which houses the NDIC Press.

Sensemaking disaggregates, synthesizes, interprets, and communicates multiple perspectives of events, always entertaining new hypotheses, and all against the recognition that dramatic failure (or success) might occur at any moment. This bold, new proposal to make sensemaking a cornerstone for the improvement of Community intelligence practice makes an extraordinary contribution to the literature of intelligence.
