About the book: Intellectual Capital
Knowledge has become
an important factor in economic life. It is a chief ingredient of what we
buy and sell, the raw material with which we work. Intellectual capital--not
natural resources, machinery, or even financial capital--has become an
indispensable asset of corporations.
Capital cuts through the vague rhetoric of "paradigm shifts" to show how
the Information Age economy really works--and how to make it work for you
and your business. Readers will learn how to discover and map the human,
structural, and customer capital that embody the knowledge assets of a
corporation; how successful companies manage their intellectual capital to
improve performance; how intellectual capital can free-up financial
resources to dramatically increase profitability; why the rise of the
"knowledge worker" leads to new principles of managing people; how the
knowledge economy affects each of us personally in our careers and how to
capitalize on the opportunities it presents.
