Abstract

This chapter considers the strategic management of intellectual capital, balancing the need to develop knowledge assets with the need to protect them. In making more strategic decisions, metrics on the level of intellectual capital and degree of knowledge management necessary to compete in an industry are required, as are those on the threat from competitive intelligence activity. The authors develop the case for appropriate metrics that accomplish these purposes, noting both potential and limitations. The authors also consider alternatives, additional data that could contribute to the usefulness and understanding of the core metrics, and provide suggestions for further research. © 2011, IGI Global.
