To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study in the research literature where domain knowledge on strategic management is represented as a graph and visually mined using graph layout algorithms for insights and new knowledge creation.

We suggest and adopt semantic networks and establish the crucial link between rule-based methodologies and data mining. To the best of our knowledge, the use of semantic networks for formalizing knowledge and enabling visual mining of existing knowledge is novel in literature.
