Verry Ronny Palilingan, Johan Reimon Batmetan


Vocational high school needs professional management in order to increase competitiveness. This requires easy, efficient and comprehensive management techniques to maximize potential. The purpose of this study is to improve vocational high school competitiveness by applying competitive intelligence methods. This study uses competitive intelligence methods that are divided into two steps: the competitive intelligence circle in formulating problems and the competitive framework of intelligence as a management model. The results of this study show that problems can be mapped using different competitive intelligence tools. The use of a competitive intelligence framework produces a prime management model and strategies. This applied framework enhances the competitiveness of the vocational high school in our case.
