Based on techniques developed in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and continuously enhanced over 15 years, our proprietary Tactical Behavior Assessment® (TBA™) methodology provides the tools to discover what others are missing regarding the facts and motivations behind corporate and personal disclosures.


Obtain Better Information from Interactions with Management

BIA's proprietary TBA methodology incorporates the psychology of how people disclose information.  Applying the BIA methodology enables you to formulate more strategic questions and ask questions in unpredictable and non-confrontational ways to avoid repetitive and rehearsed answers. The methodology results give a clearer understanding of management’s true level of confidence to close information gaps.

Analyze Management Disclosures

BIA looks at management disclosures through a different lens, using behavioral analysis to yield new insight into management's level of conviction and concerns on a range of topics. You can then make more informed decisions based on the BIA assessment of the completeness and responsiveness of management statements.

- HBS Professor, Christopher Malloy
