Companies’ environments change constantly and very quickly, so each companymust be aligned with its environment and understand what is happening to maintain andimprove its performance. To constantly adapt to its environment, the company must integratea learning process in relation to what is happening and become a "learning company." Thisposture will ensure organizational effectiveness in relation to changes in the environment andallow companies to achieve goals under the best conditions. Our project aims at delivering acompetitive and collective intelligence service allowing to support decision making processesthrough the diagnostic of alignment between internal knowledge of the organization andavailable external information.
