Thanks Mary! I appreciate your kind welcoming words. This seems like a fantastic group. I'm excited to explore and learn here. I'm currently moving into new territory as a freelancer and very much a systems guy. If anyone is interested in learning more about this tool for planning / adaptive management of conservation projects, I'd be happy to explain (it's not mine, but I'm a volunteer trainer for the Conservation Coaches Network, which uses it): www.miradi.org
The investment world is grappling with this concept. There is much resistance and much more confusion. One difficulty is absence of 'standard' framework. It's almost as if the industry wants any resolution to be perfect and yet readily accepts the vast range of outcomes from employing the DCF framework.
I believe intangible assets are leading indicators of their tangible counterparts and ultimately the results reported by corporations. At the moment though, methods of 1) identifying relevant intangibles and then 2) using them to forecast risk (around return projections) is little more than embryonic.
Hello Mary, I hope you are doing well. I did the certification last year in Chile with Arturo. I wrote to you an email talking about a startup i am working right now. I would like to have your comments.
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.
