Setting up a BI Unit
Saeed Al Zaabi, Manager, United Arab Emirates

What are the steps required to create a Business Intelligence section in my department to facilitate business planning, strategy formulation and decision making?
Do you have any tips or pitfalls to share? Thank you...
My organization is looking over natural gas supply, demand and operations.

Business Intelligence Unit in the Strategy Unit / Department
Mandulo, Manager, South Africa
In my organisation, the BI-unit resides with the strategy department. This makes sense for me because the information from BI helps in realigning strategy and keeping an eye on competitors. So I suggest that you incorporate BI in a department with a primary focus on strategy or marketing.

Position of Business Intelligence Function
Tero Kaleva, Partner, Finland
I would suggest that you start by defining the task of the section. Task is not the same as target. Do it by discussing with people who are going to use that service. Then sketch the processes for facilitating the planning, decision making etc. For the facilitator, the key skill is the ability to establish real discussions and participation.
