Exclusive Source Reporting

Certain types of information can be challenging to locate by traditional means. Intelligence specialists like TGI are able - through intelligent networking, local contacts, specialized local knowledge and digital and social skills - to reach where standard methods cannot. The proper analysis of this kind of information also often requires specialist attention. At TGI, we use specialized techniques to ensure the credibility and security of sources and provide support in contextualizing the situation.

The right person at the right place and time can work wonders for any societal or economic ambition. Moreover, enlisting their help is far more discreet and cost-effective than general sweeping approaches to acquiring information. So, to locate these golden geese and get the most out of them, enlist the services of our team at TGI. We understand the situation on the ground and know how to gather the appropriate information securely and unobtrusively.

We are highly experienced in running entire human source operations for governmental and commercial purposes. We locate, recruit, vet, and manage all sources relevant to your needs in this capacity. We go the extra mile to acquire contacts and information that is not generally within reach of most common investigative parties. At TGI, we are also highly experienced in judging the value and trustworthiness of such sources. This ensures that you will get the most accurate information possible out of any situation.


We believe that intelligence products should resemble high-quality journalistic research. It should be timely, concise, complete, and adequately substantiated. Intelligence products must also be tailored to the user's needs and requirements. We will provide high-quality reports, briefings, and in-depth analyses to best fit your requirements according to these criteria.

This includes the monitoring and analysis of open sources to keep track of developments of interest to our client, a continual readiness to delve deeper into events or specific points of interest related to our core contract, and the possibility to upscale into any of our other services, or even have services tailor-made for you.

Our approach

Level of Impact


The first step in our approach is 'indicate'. This step has the lowest level of impact—the act of indicating entails pointing out why something has happened. To save time and effort later on, it is crucial to start with the'  "indicate" step. The "indicate" step allows the formulation of well thought out strategies and can thus prevent common mistakes. At TGI, our specific approach entails mapping out the relevant playing field so that our client knows who is responsible for what and who they should approach. The indicate step explains why something has happened or why someone has done something. At TGI, we can use our expertise in various methods, from OSINT to HUMINT, to explain a particular phenomenon. The exact methodology undertaken depends on the needs and wishes of the client. A sound explanation of the past is a precondition for an adequate approach to the future.


The second step in our approach is "forecast". Building on the first step, its impact is higher than that of 'indicate' as directions for the future are based on forecasts. Without careful consideration, unfounded gambles can quickly turn into expansive mistakes. However, on the flip side, inaction will always put you behind the competition, where you might miss attractive opportunities. This dilemma can be solved by basing forecasts on solid, up-to-date intelligence. At TGI, we have the expertise and methods to construct high-quality forecasts on various issues. In the forecast step, we extensively analyse the results from the 'indicate' step to determine the most likely course of action and worst-case scenarios. This allows you to capitalise on rewarding opportunities whilst being prepared for any threats to your business. An adequate understanding of the future takes away uncertainty and puts you in control.


"Influence" is the third step in the TGI approach and has an even more significant impact than "forecast". Whereas the previous two stages are intellectual, influencing involves exercising power on another actor to change their conviction on a specific topic and planned course of action regardless of whether the other actor knows that it is being influenced. The right influence simultaneously increases opportunities and reduces threats. At TGI, the 'influence' step predicts the positions of certain actors and indicates what has happened to determine how best to influence those actors. This means that we combine our research and analytical capabilities with our extensive network of influential people to create a new development or event and steer an existing development in the desired direction. TGI can influence the right actors or developments to put you in control.


The final step in the TGI approach is "act". This has the most significant impact of all four stages. This stage is the final step since it depends heavily on a sound explanation of the past and an adequate prediction of the future. Furthermore, it is also impossible to act on developments or opportunities that have not yet been created. Acts are most effective if they are carried out with complete determination and the right combination of capabilities. At TGI, we meet both requirements. The "act" step is what TGI's approach is all about. The three previous steps have been building up to and laying the foundation for this last step. We have explained a development in the 'indicate' step, predicted the most likely course of action and the worst-case scenario in the 'forecast' step, and created the right developments in the 'influence' step. It is now time to capitalise on the opportunities created and have intelligence put you in control.
