Each stage of knowledge management process has implications for knowledge management and competitive intelligence and vice versa. In addition, synergic and separate use of knowledge and intelligence results in effective decision-making, leading to competitive advantage.

Organizations should have knowledge management function and competitive intelligence to support the strategy formulation, implementation and evaluation.
