On Business and Intelligence : a study of a management's perception of the business context and its effects on the gathering of business information (English)
Abstract [en]

Background: Increasing globalization makes companies more influenced than before by actors and factors in their environment. For some this has lead to a more dynamic and complicated business context. Therefore it is of strategic importance to understand what is currently going on as well as to have a general idea of what the future brings.

Purpose: To contribute to a deeper understanding of how a corporate management can perceive its business environment and how it affects he gathering of business information from a strategic perspective.

Realisation: In-depth interviews were conducted with all four members of the management in the studied company, Volvo Competence Center in Skovde, Sweden.

Conclusions: The company's business context was perceived predominantely congruently by the management. Business intelligence was found to be linked mostly to personal areas of resposibility. A model was produced to show the connection between perception of environment and gathering of business information, and VCC was applied in this model.
