SMEs in Bangladesh are playing a pivotal role in its economic development.Competitive intelligence in Bangladesh is at an infancy stage as SMEs do notfollow any formal structure and often use the system on adhoc basis ratherthan a regular practice. This research reports an interesting finding thatinstead of management’s attitude, lack of adequate insight about the systemalong with cost inhibits Competitive Intelligence System (CIS) implementation. In addition, policy support from the government, skilled manpower, awareness level, and management’s vision, firm’s infrastructure and resource base (tangible and intangible), along with managerial & technical efficiency act as the impediments in CIS implementation.
