Founder and Chief Catalyst of Smarter-Companies

For nearly 30 years, I have helped business leaders conquer challenges such as growth, change, mergers and acquisitions. Along the way, I have lived the shift from the Industrial to the Social Era. This shift is driving a need for basic changes in how we measure, manage and monetize our collective knowledge.

My absolute passion is unlocking the collective power of intangible capital, the key asset class for companies today, providing 80% of the value and 100% of the competitive advantage of the average company today. In connection with this work, I co-authored of Intangible Capital: Putting Knowledge to Work in the 21st Century Organization with Michael Oleksak and founded the IC Knowledge Center which was re-launched in January 2013 as Smarter-Companies.

I started my career in high-risk finance at Citicorp and Sanwa Business Credit. After that I founded Trek, a management consulting firm where she developed the tools that are now in the ICounts Toolset.

You can find me on LinkedIn as MaryAdamsICA. My Twitter name is also MaryAdams ICA. Please feel free to contact me by email or call me at 781-729-9650,

Hi Mary,

Sure I will share,

Saudi Arabia just lunched its national Knowledge Based Society strategy (KBS) that would be the umbrella for all other national plans.

We are following the Korean footsteps, quite ambitious, I believe.

Hi Mary,

Thanks for your reply. Yes we do include intangibles in our offering...embedded all the way through but overtly up front in an audit process (intangible value audit) and in our value proposition..i.e We guide you to deal with complexity. It is our belief that business need to lift their level of thinking, clean up the power and politics that erode value and become systems thinkers in order to thrive in the future.

Cheers

Michelle
