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.
