Smarter-Companies is a community of knowledge providers and tools that optimize returns on the intangible capital that makes up 80% of corporate value in companies today.
Despite its enormous importance today, most business people lack the basic knowledge and tools needed to optimize intangible capital (see definition of intangible capital here). This leads to blocked learning, suboptimal performance, stifled innovation and stagnant growth.
We are determined to change that and to change how organizations are managed. And we don’t intend to do it alone. We are built on the concept of collaborative advantage. This means that our community supports both our own offerings as well as those competing and complementary organizations:
Smarter-Companies was launched in January 2013 but its roots go back many years to the work of Mary Adams in the development of practical intangible capital concepts in U.S. middle market companies, the book she co-authored Intangible Capital—and to the IC Knowledge Center, a site and community first launched in 2006.
Please join us in our drive to change the field of management and to unleash the power of the intangible capital lying dormant in organizations everywhere!
