in a book titled Knowledge Management in the Intelligence Enterprise, the word business has been used very often. I don't understand its meaning— maybe it means trade or job processes (organisational intelligence) in intelligence organisations?
This is a book about the management of knowledge to produce and deliver a special kind of knowledge: intelligence—that knowledge that is deemed most critical for decision making both in the nation-state and in business
Knowledge management refers to the organizational disciplines, processes, and information technologies used to acquire, create, reveal, and deliver knowledge that allows an enterprise to accomplish its mission (achieve its strategic or business objectives).
Driven by the complexity of operations on a global scope, national policies and business strategies involve the consideration of many interactive variables
Indeed, intelligence (whether national or business) has always involved the management (acquisition, analysis, synthesis, and delivery) of knowledge
Because of these factors, the management of knowledge to produce strategic intelligence has become a necessary and critical function within nations-states and business enterprises—requiring changes in culture, processes, and infrastructure to compete.
