To answer the question “what is operationalisation of intelligence?”, we must first define what the words “operationalisation” and “intelligence” mean independently. Operationalisation can be defined as turning abstract concepts into data that can be measured, or putting something into motion or use. Intelligence on the other hand has many definitions; however, in this context, intelligence refers to a collection of information or data. Thus when we speak about the operationalisation of intelligence we are referring to the manner in which information is gathered, and measured, as well as the reaction that it inspires.
In this article, we will discuss how one can operationalise processes, and how active intelligence can be operationalised.
