Students will learn how to perform the specific actions of problem definition and breakdown, target network modelling, and collaborative sharing in the service of creating a high-quality, actionable intelligence product. This book provides hands-on skill-building and application-moving from the "what" and the "why" to the "how". The first part of the book will introduce the analytic methodology, stressing the basics of model building. The second part of the book comprises case studies with exercises that span issues/topics covering terrorism, law enforcement, military operations, cyber-security, transnational crime, and homeland security. The authors will also provide an instructor's guide with possible solutions for the exercises (as no case has just one "right" answer).
