This handbook is designed to help analysts in the Intelligence Community become more effective at their craft. The handbook articulates the philosophy and mission of intelligence officers and systematically lays out principles they can use to conceptualize and create written and oral products. Officers can adapt these principles to their individual accounts, from substantive analysis to staff and administrative work.
The skill portions of the handbook focus on tools for strengthening officers' ability to arrive quickly at an overall judgment and make a case for it and to communicate both clearly and concisely. Emphasis is on written communication, but the principles of analytic writing-clarity , brevity, and precision--apply equally to oral presentations.
The sections on analytic objectivity provide officers with guidance on avoiding bias and increasing objectivity, techniques for building the analytic sophistication, and areas in which they can seek additional training.
