Just had an article published in the most recent issue of the Journal of Applied Corporate Finance. The theme of the issue was Sustainability and Shareholder Value. My article was entitled Intangibles and Sustainability: Holistic approaches to measuring and managing value creation. I was honored to be in great company of thought leaders from the academic and business worlds.

For me, this article represented an important journey toward bringing intangible capital thinking to a broader context. As I've been sharing in the past year, I am very inspired by the intent of the integrated reporting movement to address all the "capitals" in organizations. As part of writing this article, I developed the graphic at the right that, for me, provides a map for experts in different disciplines to coordinate our work. (Click to view the full graphic)

Here's a copy of the article. I look forward to your feedback!

Mary,

I liked the article, very reflective but equally bringing together the issues and challenges. As you concluded the need is to improve the flow of information, fill in the intangible information gap and demonstrate the value of holistic, integrated management. Tough but the right goals.

What stands out for me is your graphic, it has significant potential to build a clearer integrated narrative upon.

Thanks for sharing this
