Global Industry Radar (GIR)

Competitively advantaged access to innovations and critical developments in your industry sector/function from our unique global scanning capability

The Global Industry Radar (GIR) provides advantaged access to insights, innovations, developments and key sectoral activities across the globe that are relevant to your business. This unique report provides comprehensive periodic coverage of what you and your team need to know so you are always well informed. The report is sold just once in each country to ensure advantaged access to its subscriber base. The report is produced every four months and for a modest additional fee, can be accompanied by a briefing call with our global expert teams.

The GIR takes a top down and bottom up approach to covering your industry sector or function. We synthesise key themes and trends, but we also identify individual initiatives, pilots, new business models, best practices, disruptors, and major investments in core capabilities that are “hot” from across markets globally. These insights are presented in a unique structured form which allows you to access publicly available information immediately but also request more detailed CCS (Certified Case Studies), orchestrated introductions and reverse engineering to ensure you and your team don’t miss a key development and risk being caught un-informed.

Executives have had to rely on a myriad of inputs from the media, industry journals, consulting firms and global discovery tours to uncover developments This is an expensive, idiosyncratic and less effective search process than ICG’s revolutionary new GIR Global Industry Radar tool.

GIR reports includes:

  • Country and regional snap shots of what is new and impactful in major markets (case study based format)
  • Key investments and major projects that show commitment to a new strategic initiative or platform development or best practice
  • A prioritization framework that helps you to focus on on what is innovative and what is producing impact
  • A summary description of each case study and links to publicly available information.

GIR is one of ICG’s best selling products – it enables competitive advantage for first mover organizations and dramatically reduces the cost and increases the effectiveness of your corporate sensing and environmental scanning capability. GIR can either be commissioned in new sector/function domains or you can contact your local affiliate to see if an opportunity exists to join an existing relevant GIR which is unfilled in your market.
