Overview

Tools and techniques from today's leading intellectual capital innovators: Xerox, Dow Chemical, Hewlett-Packard, Avery Dennison, Eastman Chemical, Rockwell, and Skandia

In today's postindustrial economy, technology and knowledge-based companies are superseding traditional manufacturing enterprises at a rapid rate. But as tangible assets give way to invisible, information-centered ones, most firms still know very little about their intellectual capital and what it can do for them.

While a number of books and articles have already been written about the knowledge-creation and information-sharing aspects of intellectual capital management, Profiting from Intellectual Capital takes the next step—examining how companies can develop financial benefits and extract ever more value from their intellectual capital.

Divided into three sections, the book is filled with the practices and procedures of companies that are in the vanguard of ICM—Dow Chemical, Xerox, Rockwell International, Skandia, and Hewlett-Packard. The first part of the book presents essential terms and concepts, along with basic material on the principles of value extraction and a discussion of the usefulness of values in the management of intellectual capital. The two subsequent sections offer methods for IC measurement, management, and monitoring, as well as important techniques for extracting value—including such practical initiatives as creating an intellectual property database, patent trees, and more.

Profiting from Intellectual Capital is essential reading for today's forward-thinking executives, attorneys, accountants, and other professionals. Because while knowledge is power,knowledge can be profits, too.
