I like to say that performance measures should be “actionable,” in that they are useful for a decision that needs to be made. To be useful, the measures need to provide information useful to, fit the decision style of, and be easily understandable by a decision-maker. When I develop performance measures, I first work with the decision-makers to understand the decisions they face and what information will be useful for their…Continue
„e-mentor” (polish scientific journal) just published interesting article entitled as this post. Here is its english summary:
„In the last decade the development of the discipline of knowledge management has slowed compared to the previous successful period. Currently, this development can be accelerated again, because a new branch of post-industrial financial accounting adopted the concept of intellectual capital. The purpose of this article is to present the innovatory…Continue
Recent comments released from IIRC in their February 2014 Newsletter
Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, has spoken of, "the breakneck pattern of integration and interconnectedness that defines our time”, bringing with it tensions in economic sustainability and global interconnections. <IR> is an important mechanism for driving the new way of thinking and behaviour needed in the ‘hyper-connected’ world that Lagarde has described.

What we need is to recognize is the real “nesting effect” from all of our capitals. Each of our capitals performs a particular function and the overhaul make-up of their understanding becomes our eventual code to perform innovation.
Each organizations uses it mix of capitals to accomplish and generate innovation. It is in this mixture of combinations brought together constantly in different ways , this ‘nested effect’ that innovation occurs. The…Continue

Over the decade or so that I have been focused on intangible capital, there has been a parallel conversation going on about sustainability. These are two broad fields with many players and approaches but I’ll try to generalize the two (excuse the shorthand versions):
I was researching different aspects of Innovation, Intellectual Capital and Business Connections over recent weeks.
One comment struck me, it has been with me, nagging away in my brain for these last few days......can you help?
What do you make of this personally?
"The intellectual capital paradigm appears to be stuck at a crossroads of relevance"
Any thoughts, the context is yours, not in what or where I found it

The Polish Wikipedia not only mentions about the new branch of financial accounting. It also indicates the new forms of balance sheets for knowledge-based organizations. Just check entry for „Balance sheet (accounting)” (in polish: bilans (rachunkowość)). There you will find a point „Balance sheet for knowledge-based organizations” (in polish: bilans dla organizacji opartej na wiedzy). Here is my attempt of translation:

I was at the FMA-NH meeting on Tuesday night talking about, what else?, intangibles.
Here's an expanded version of the deck I used and thought I would share:…
Organizations still stutter in their appreciating of where their true value resides. It resides in all their collective capitals.
So who is stepping up to the plate to get this nailed, buttoned down, once and for all clarified?
Recognizing where our true value resides is still a real organizational problem.

We are recognizing increasingly that both individuals and organizations needs to explore multiple ways to learn and find the right pathway for innovation learning as they progress.
This needs a more ‘dynamic social fabric’ to allow it to flow, it needs organizational encouragement. It needs mutual adaptions and mutual adjustment. The understanding of absorptive capacity framework significantly helps structure this. Also any dynamic social fabric…Continue
