This study examined an intelligence analysis framework built using specific cognitive critical thinking skills. The framework demonstrated that intelligence analysis did improve, specifically with the novice analysts that participated, and there was demonstrated specificity in the respondents’ analyses. A panel of experts provided insight and content assurance that demonstrated the intelligence analysis and products produced were valuable for use at the tactical level. Finally, this study examined successful historical counterinsurgencies in relation to the analytical framework utilized in order to understand how this analysis leads to operational success.
