AN APPROACH AT THE INTERSECTION OF KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT PROCESS AND STRATEGIC FORESIGHT: HORIZON SCANNING

Kırşehir Ahi Evran Üniversitesi, İİBF, İşletme Bölümü

Abstract

Uncertainty is not desirable at  organizational level. Therefore, businesses can handle the intricacy caused by their internal and external environments solely when they combine knowledge management and strategic foresight processes.. In this study, horizon scanning has been  defined as a strategic foresight approach and its relationship with knowledge management has been displayed.  This study also emphasizes the fact that  while this forecasting method has commonly been used in many of the European countries in public and private sectors, it has not been investigated and employed in Turkey. Moreover,  how the horizon scanning is applied and  its organizational effects are explained. In addition, in the era of industry 4.0, along with foresight operations and knowledge management,  horizon scanning has been considered as  a strategic approach that will contribute to the businesses to catch up with the future.
