Abstract [en]

The business environment has become more risky over the past decades. How do the companies prepare for the competitive environment and how are they working with risk identification and risk management, early warning system and blindspots in order to strengthen their positions on the market? In order to sufficiently investigate the subject, the following two problems function as the base of the thesis. What change drivers affect the industry, and what are the risks that these changes generate for the companies on a strategic, operative and financial level? How does the Swedish broadcasting industry work with business intelligence in order to strengthen their position towards their competitors as well as preparing for future changes in the environment in which they operate? The purpose of the thesis is to examine and identify the main factors affecting the broadcasting industry in Sweden, using TV3, TV4 and Kanal5 as reference points and how Business Intelligence is conducted and applied within these companies in order to strengthen their position. The method approach used is of an explorative kind since no previous studies were found on the subject. The information gathered is mainly of a qualitative kind using some quantitative data. The thesis has been conducted as case studies of the three companies. Several interviews with relevant personal within the organizations studied were conducted. In our final discussion we have concluded that the companies are efficiently identifying their risks and management action is taken rapidly when necessary. In contrast, the intelligence monitoring within the studied companies is rather weak according to Gilad’s theories of the Early Warning Triangle. The industry change drivers strongly affect the development of the industry and must be carefully observed in order to react proactively to the many risks the companies are exposed to.
