In the knowledge economy, the value of corporations is directly related to their knowledge and intellectual capital. But broaden the perspective a little wider and you begin to see the possibilities: Think of cities, regions, even entire nations, in addition to the public sector. If intangibles and intellectual capital are important to the private sector, they are also important to the productivity and competitiveness of the public sector, and so to communities and nations as a whole. In this book, Editors Ahmed Bounfour and Leif Edivinsson have brought together the best minds in intellectual capital throughout the world to focus on a new and fertile area of research: measuring and managing the intellectual capital of communities. This is a creative and cutting-edge area of research that has the potential to change how public sector planning and development is done. Once there is a clear way to identify where wealth is created in a given region/nation, this process has the potential to reveal a huge knowledge repository in the public sector with a significant—but idle—potential for collective wealth creation—the wealth of nations in waiting.

Over the past decade, knowledge assets and intellectual capital have been attracting an increasing amount of attention, not only from academics and CEOs, but also from national policy makers. To date, most studies of intellectual capital have focused at the organizational level, with an emphasis on explaining the role of “intangible assets” as a differentiator between accounting value and market value as a possible source of corporate competitive advantage. More recently, pioneers in the field, including the authors of this book, have begun to apply these methodologies to a broader scope, with the objective of comparing the intellectual capital indices at the national or regional level. As a result, an increasing number of world organizations and researchers are commissioned to investigate this future-oriented crucial national issue. Yet, the linkage between the value of intangible assets and how to quantify or benchmark it is still tenuous, not to mention easily misunderstood by a layman for guiding better decision making. With the belief that numbers talk and statistics hide valuable information, this book serves to present the authors’ research findings, covering 14 years (1995-2008) of intellectual capital information, comprised of human capital, market capital, process capital, renewal capital, and financial capital for 40 countries. The last three chapters go beyond analysis of current intellectual capital factors, and present practical tools for launching initiatives at the national level. The book will serve as an essential resource for researchers, policy makers, and business leaders concerned with issues of economic growth and competitiveness, innovation, and business creation.

Increasingly, the challenge of management is to create and supply knowledge in order to sustain organizational performance. However, few books on management strategy have been written using this concept as a foundation. This unique volume adopts a knowledge-based approach that will complement and perhaps supplant other perspectives. Editors Nick Bontis and Chun Wei Choo look at the literature through the lens of strategic management and from the vantage point of organizational science. The thirty readings have been carefully selected and commissioned to provide the best literature available--from articles newly written for this book and from existing publications.

This book shows that intangible assets are becoming as important as tangible assets in a knowledge-based service-oriented economy. It provides practical advice on how to identify, document and manage these assets. The book provides a framework for organizations planning for re-engineering and downsizing, a method for determining who and what is valuable to the corporation, given a variety of circumstances. Intellectual Capital will also assist senior managers who want to value or acquire an enterprise where the assets are intangible and are not recorded in their published accounts. This is an ideas book for managers keen to understand and interpret the nature of a business which principally sells its knowledge: knowledge assets based in its people, systems, brands, intellectual property and other intangibles.

It's easy to add up the obvious assets of a business: simply tally the value of the physical attributes like computers, real estate, inventory, vehicles, etc. But there is much more to a business, including patents, copyrights, trademarks and, above all, worker creativity and talent. Leif Edvinsson is the world's leading authority on intellectual capital-- those elusive assets that represent the skills and ideas of the people behind the products. As Director of Intellectual Capital at Skandia, one of Europe's most respected and forward-thinking financial firms, he has developed a method for quantifying, expanding, developing and managing these resources. Using case studies of Microsoft, IBM, Netscape, Cisco and Pixar, Leif Edvinsson and Michael S. Malone, a high-tech journalist and coauthor of the bestselling "The Virtual Corporation", explain how the most successful companies have discovered the benefits of utilizing, and the dangers of ignoring, intellectual capital.
