Take advantage of vast experience in competitive intelligenceInsightologist®.

My name is Jens Thieme, Insightologist®, Founder & Principal of Opportunis, former president and board member of the Swiss Association for Market Research, Competitive Intelligence and Strategic Planning ( and former board of directors member of the Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals Association (SCIP).

Experience: 27+ years of marketing leadership functions within global blue chip corporations; board memberships and committee leadership at global and national market analysis and competitive intelligence associations and from starting and running several online entities and my own company.

Throughout my career I assembled, executed and led countless projects in marketing and specifically in competitive intelligence including large scale digitalization programs.

I worked in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Switzerland and Germany in life science, specialty chemicals, Pharma, biotech and bioscience solutions and run projects in other key industries like automotive and surface solutions.

As a published practitioner, project manager, department leader, key decision maker and entrepreneur in all marketing functions and competitive intelligence disciplines I offer a tremendous experience blend.

Philosophy: actionable and impacting competitive intelligence is not a single tool or analysis. It is the concerted set of activities to answer "so what" questions in response to a decision need.

Having operated for decades in the entire strategic decision making value chain (from market researcher, competitive analyst, market developer, strategic planner, to executive, leader, decision maker and entrepreneur within large corporations, non-profit associations, marketing think tanks and my own consultancy) prepares me to offer a complete systematic approach to the improvement of your competitive intelligence needs.

Your success in your competitive intelligence improvement programs and projects will directly improve your key business decisions and their results. I will ensure that success and impact.

I am looking forward to discuss your needs in establishing or improving the best competitive intelligence program for you. Phone: +41 79 249 5921.

Also available as a public speaker, offering marketing and competitive intelligence workshops, coaching sessions and presentations.
