Abstract

The role of business intelligence in driving strategic planning in organizations have received considerable attention from many scholars. Nonetheless, there remains a promising area for further research, especially when considering moderating variables on effects such as knowledge management, which has contributed to businesses’ appreciation of the importance of business intelligence. To this end, in this study, the researchers constructed a conceptual model based on existing literature by incorporating relevant research variables. A questionnaire survey was conducted among a random sample of 307 employees selected from three telecom companies in Jordan. The researchers then utilized structural equation modeling with AMOS 21.0 to validate and test the model. The findings of the study revealed that business intelligence has a significant positive influence on strategic foresight. Furthermore, the analysis indicated that knowledge management mediates the relationship between business intelligence and strategic foresight. The implications and recommendations of academic research are also discussed.
