Journal of Intelligence Studies in Business <p align="justify">JISIB is a peer-reviewed, no-fee Open Access Journal. The journal publishes articles on topics including market intelligence, marketing intelligence, strategic intelligence, business intelligence, competitive intelligence, collective intelligence, financial intelligence, scientific and technical intelligence, foresight, insight, and equivalent terms in other languages. These include “<em>l’information stratégique et de la sécurité économiques</em>” (Sisse) [previously “<em>intelligence économique"</em>] and “<em>veille</em>” in France, “<em>omvärldsanalys</em>” in Sweden and “<em>Konkurrenz-/Wettbewerbsforschung</em>” in Germany. The journal has a managerial focus as well as an applied technical focus (information systems), as these are now well-integrated into real life business intelligence solutions. By focusing on business applications the journal does not compete directly with journals that focus on library sciences or state/national/military intelligence studies. The journal only publishes articles on knowledge management and knowledge transfer in exceptional cases, as these are well developed areas with their own journals.</p> <p align="justify">JISIB occupies a niche. It currently caters to a group of scholars made up of over 200 active individuals spread around the world. It is supported by an estimated 5,000 practitioners and caters to specific conferences (<a href="">ICI</a>, <a href="">ECIS</a>, <a href="">SIIE</a>, <a title="VSST" href=";lang=en">VSST</a>, <a href="">SCIP</a>, <a href="">ITICTI</a>, <a href="">EBRF</a>, ECKM, <a href="">AIM</a>) where both academics and practitioners meet regularly. These conferences produce over 300 papers annually, of which over 40 are potentially full-length, scientific articles. JISIB publishes three issues a year made up of between five and seven articles and 55+ pages.</p> <p align="justify">To strengthen the ties between business intelligence researchers and practitioners, an independent management board of practitioners has been created for the journal.</p> <p align="justify">Those interested in posting research topics and discuss the journal can do so at the <a href="">JISIB Linkedin Group</a>.

It also deepens understanding of the moderating role played by mindfulness meditation (MM) as a coping strategy on the effect of JS on burnout. A cross-sectional plan was designed, whereby a survey was randomly used to obtain data from 338 medical personnel from private hospitals in Nigeria, and a partial least square structural equation modeling was used to test hypotheses contained in the heuristic model depicting the structural relationship between constructs. However, the discovery shows that JS is a significant mediator between EI and Burnout, and also there’s a partial mediation of SA-JS and DA-JS between EI and burnout. Findings have it that MM significantly moderates the effect of JS on burnout and MM’s inefficiency negatively impacts JS on Burnout. Hence, the heuristic model remains a cogent contributor to the body of knowledge and the moderating role of mindfulness meditation as a copying strategy, as well as conducting the study among medical personnel of privately-owned hospital in Nigeria health care sector.</p> Benard Gisilanbe Vetbuje, Banji Rildwan Olaleye Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Intelligence Studies in Business Thu, 22 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 The mediating effect of entrepreneurial orientation on the impact of knowledge management processes on successful organizational performance at industrial sector in Jordan <p>The study aimed to identify the mediating effect of entrepreneurial orientation on the impact of knowledge management processes on successful organizational performance at industrial sector in Jordan.

The independent variables are Islamic Corporate Governance and Sharia Compliance with the Proxy of Islamic Income Ratio and Profit Sharing Ratio. The dependent variable is fraud in Islamic Commercial Banks. The population in this study were all Islamic Banks registered in the Financial Services Authority in the period 2016 to 2020. The samples were selected using the purposive sampling method. In this study, there were 11 Islamic Banks with a 5 years research period so that the total sample used in this study amounted to 55. The analytical method used in this study was logistic regression which was processed using SPSS version 25. The results of this study indicate that the Islamic Corporate Governance variable has a positive influence on indications of fraud occurring in Islamic Commercial Banks, Sharia Compliance with the Proxy Profit Sharing Ratio has a negative influence on indications of fraud occurrence in Islamic Commercial Banks while Sharia Compliance with the proxy of Islamic Income Ratio does not affect the indications of the occurrence of frauds in Islamic Commercial Banks.</p> Dedik Triyanto Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Intelligence Studies in Business Thu, 22 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 How to improve the vision and competitive advantage of a new product by ICT and OLC? <p>Human resources and capital are the basis of any successful organization but nowadays, organizations that learn and are based on innovation are more successful. The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of information and communication technology (ICT) on new product competitive advantage (NPCA) and new product vision (NPV) through the partial mediating role of organizational learning capability (OLC) by structural equation modeling (SEM). Iran’s Automobile Industry was selected as the statistical population. The results show that ICT has a significant effect on OLC and OLC has a significant effect on NPCA and NPV, which indicates the indirect effect of ICT on NPCA and NPV and confirms the mediating role of OLC. ICT also has a significant direct effect on NPCA and NPV, which confirms the partial mediating role of OLC. Finally, NPCA and NPV can be improved through OLC by using and implementing ICT.</p> Mohammad Hossein Khasmafkan Nezam Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Intelligence Studies in Business Thu, 22 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Mobile Applications Adoption and Use in Strategic Competitive Intelligence: A Structural Equation Modelling Approach <p>This article examined the key determinants of mobile applications’ adoption<br>and use in strategic competitive intelligence. A quantitative research based on a survey of<br>150 participants drawn from strategic competitive intelligence practitioners and analysts was<br>used to examine and validate the extended UTAUT2 Model to identify the key determinants<br>of mobile applications` adoption and use in SCI. PLS-SEM algorithm was used to analyse<br>data. Findings show that PE, SI, HT, SE, and BI had significant influence over UB while EE,<br>HM, PV, SN, and PR had an insignificant influence. Adoption and use of mobile applications<br>was considered a planned behaviour. Perhaps the most important findings for SCIPs relate<br>to the importance-performance map analysis that showed the greater absolute importance of<br>self-efficacy on use behaviour. Previous empirical studies have largely ignored the influence of<br>cognitive psychological perceptive which this study addressed by examining key determinants<br>of behaviour intention and user behaviour.</p> Alexander Maune, Milind Thomas Themalil Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Intelligence Studies in Business Thu, 22 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Networking capabilities and digital adoption of business agility with Business model innovation as a mediating variable <p>In business, agility is a method that places projects on a smaller scale and engages team members through constant collaboration and continuous iteration.

As the old saying goes, “knowledge is power,” and this is especially<br>true when it comes to staying ahead of the competition.<br>Competitive intelligence is the process of gathering, analyzing, and disseminating information<br>about the products, services, and strategies of a company’s competitors in order to gain a strategic<br>advantage. It involves studying the strengths and weaknesses of competitors, as well as trends and<br>developments in the industry, in order to inform business decisions and strategies.<br>The scope of competitive intelligence is broad, and can include a wide range of activities and<br>sources of information. Some common sources of competitive intelligence include public information,<br>such as company websites, press releases, and industry reports, as well as private information, such<br>as sales data, market research, and customer feedback. Recent research shows that competitive intelligence is beginning to cover an ever wider range. The topics of scientific articles go beyond aspects of business and management.</p> Andrejs Cekuls Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Intelligence Studies in Business Thu, 22 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000
