Intellectual Capital : The New Wealth of Organizations
Thomas A. Stewart
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Visionary in scope, Intellectual Capital is the first book that shows how to turn the untapped knowledge of an organization into its greatest competitive weapon. Thomas A. Stewart demonstrates how knowledge--not natural resources, machinery, or financial capital--has become the most important factor in economic life. Through practical advice, stories, and case histories, Stewart reveals how organizations and individuals can create and use the knowledge assets they need. Dazzling in its ability to make conceptual sense of the economic revolution we are living through, this ingenious book cuts through the vague rhetoric of "paradigm shifts" to show how the Information Age economy really works.
Intellectual Capital should be read as if the futures of your company and your career depend on it. They do.
A leader in establishing KM's language and terminology, Stewart offers perhaps one of the best expressions of the concept of "intellectual capital," which he defines as "organized knowledge that can be used to produce wealth." The clarity and practical focus of his writing make this work essential reading. (LJ 4/15/97) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
