The study also used a questionnaire to collect primary data from individuals working at the upper, middle, and lower administrative levels in the main departments of Jordanian Islamic banks, where (150) questionnaires were distributed, and (132) valid questionnaires were retrieved for statistical analysis. To analyze the data, descriptive statistics methods were used, and multiple linear regression analysis was used to test the study hypotheses.

The study recommended the importance of Jordanian Islamic banks defining a strategic vision and objectives that focus on exploiting knowledge capital to achieve competitive advantage, and working to achieve integration between knowledge capital and the company's strategies.
