Intention, context, emotional intelligence, escalation, and sustainability are words that are absent from the operational management techniques of managers worldwide. However, they form the basis of skills required to manage organizations in today's knowledge-based economy. Ken Standfield investigates the ways in which intangible values can be identified, measured, and managed. His revolutionary and innovative taxonomy reveals fundamental differences between a manufacturing economy and one that creates value through knowledge, relationships, and time. By using case studies, a combination of theory and applications, and a set of accounting tools, Standfield demonstrates how a new value framework can protect investors while giving companies the ability to generate long-term growth.

Standfield (The International Intangible Management Standards Institute) considers techniques for identifying, measuring, and managing intangible values, especially in a knowledge-based economy. Chapters cite the weaknesses of conventional management, detail intangible operating structures, and explain specific aspects of the proposed framework, including intangible accounting, intangible bookkeeping, intangible cost management, the identification of nonproductive time, and intangible information management. Case studies illustrate the relationships between the theory and their applications. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
