Questions: 1. When considering Sherman Kent’s analytic doctrine, what areas within his 9 steps do you feel will be most difficult for you to maintain and why? During this course, how will you ensure your cohort stays true to the doctrine?

2. Is the field of Intelligence Analysis a craft, profession and/or a discipline? Why or why not? How does it compare to the field of Medicine?

3. Intelligence remains a ‘‘craft culture’’ operating within a guild structure and an apprenticeship system—in fact, self-consciously referring to ‘‘tradecraft’’ for example. . . . Such a culture builds pragmatically on accreted practices that were successful in the past, lacks the strong formal epistemology of a true discipline, and is reliant on implicit transmission of often tacit expertise and domain knowledge from experts to novices.
