Hi Mary, yes. I mean the role. To what extent are the intangible assets considered in such a process? Thereby I regard succession rather broad, it could be initated due to involuntary as well as voluntary turnover. Best wishes Susanne
I would like to start collaboration with people interested in the meaning of intangible assets in SMEs' succession processes. As I am from the University-side I am particularly interested in finding practitioners who are facing this situation and thus are available and willing to participate. Thank you and best regards, Susanne
You're welcome to my support, anytime. I actually wanted to talk with you about a couple of things while we were in Hong Kong but unfortunately I wasn't feeling the best on Friday afternoon and so I missed you. For a start I was wondering if I could entice you to come to ECIC next year which will be held here in Cyprus. Something for you to think about. I'll be back in touch by email early next week with the rest. Enjoy your weekend. Best wishes.
I am interested with some of the comments made by distinguish members concerning failure to convince their management of IC value and the difficulties transforming organizational IC components into value Added SC.
It would be interested to discuss some of the thoughts shared by few on how best to exploit HC and RC in order to leverage merging such assets into a SC format. How to convert a small pilot IC exercise throughout the organization and how best to set a road-map for an organization to follow in order to have ONE IC statement that direct the corporation into the future.
Better off how can we building the understanding of such simple concept in the new generation .... I meant our kids.... I challenge most experts that they have not reached to such intensity although they are recognized as icons in that IC field. One of the problem could the story that one enjoy then forget and It could be fun to listen too again.
Few thoughts to start .... and hope to share with you more in the time to come .... L2L
Thanks for your great efforts in forming a great community with ICKC.
All IT systems as we know ultimately aim at organizational productivity. IT systems are implemented for each and every area of an organization. Among them there are many systems which are more relevant for enhancing IC. We should focus on such systems and try to build new ones for IC management. Among all, I consider collaboration systems and systems which aid knowledge capture/transfer/security as the most important for IC enhancement. Many organizations use such systems already. KM professionals are more involved with such systems. Such organizations are ahead of others who do not use such systems. But the most difficult part for everyone is measuring these intangibles and their benefits. IC Measurement is being practiced by some but not well-spread, as it is considered a difficult process.
So in summary, I think organizations already recognized the value of intangibles. But due to the difficulty in measuring those intangibles they are not fully reported/exposed. It is the responsibility of the IC community to enhance research and collaboration to come up with 'easy to use' methods and tools, framework, best practices and other deliverables for measuring and reporting intangibles. When more organizations start measuring and reporting IC, importance of IC will grow further and the IC domain will prosper!
Rather then enjoying the Caribbean as most people would do, I working my a. off to get things going. I am on a mission ... well, interim management engagement to set up a number of new initiatives/companies (see my profile on LinkedIn).
I would love to continue participate in IC, but time is just too short. But I will remain my profile and still reading here and there some of the threads.
This way I won't get out of the loop totally and hope to get back more actively in the future.
Thanks for asking and keep up the good work here.
Interim Manager - Business Development
Mary, thanks for your energy!! I always love learning something new so I'm going to follow this for awhile and enjoy enjoy! you have pulled together an impressive group of people. . thanks for your good work!
Could it be that IC is in the Ignorance space, outside the traditional KM system of old Accounting? It is invisible, it is intangi ble and it is in the in-between space. Looking at social media it looks like this is verifying the importance of Relational Capital as the key driver.
