Sensemaking: A Structure or an Intelligence Revolution,
by David . Moore
Sensemaking, whereby intelligence proessionals would work with executive decisionmakers to explain data that are “sparse, noisy, and uncer-tain,” requires an interpreter and experienced champion to bring about a practicable understanding and acceptance o the concept among intelligence practitioners. David Moore has accomplished that eat. Further, he, along with collaborators in chapters 5 and 7, demonstrate how sensemaking can be accomplished as a collaborative enterprise.Te manuscript or this publication was reviewed and cleared or pub-lic release by the Department o Deense’s Oﬃ ce o Security Review.
