OK, lets say a company leader agrees that 80% or more of its value is driven by intangibles. So the leader says "What value do I get from measuing something I already assume to be true?

It would be for everyone's benefit that this community answer the question. Aferall, we're creating new value that must be explained before the market can understand it.

What is your answer ?

How does he assume it to be true?  What did he do to measure it at 80% ?  If he measured it already, why?  He must have envisioned some sort of ROI on the original measurement.  

Hi Jay,

This is a fundamental question indeed. I wrote a short paper to answer this question few years ago, titled

What is Intellectual Capital? And why it should be measured?.

Let me know if it answers the question.

Nice piece of work, Thanks for sharing. Maybe we should start a library for others to access???
