The New Capitalism – People and the Need for New of Value Metrics

Portals and KM

I have seen what happens where start-ups do not invest in employee development or large organizations cut back on it with damaging consequences. Ironically it is partially covered under the concept of intangible assets as through people were intangibles. The rise of intangible assets as a percentage of enterprise value is partially, but not completely a part of the rise of the recognition of the value of people.

The Postdigital Enterprise Needs to Shift Attention from the Cost Side to the Value Side

Portals and KM

Rather than treating employees as cost items that need to be managed wherever possible, why not view them as assets capable of delivering ever increasing value to the marketplace? There is little, if any, limit to the additional value that people can deliver if given the appropriate tools and skill development.”. These are not my words of wisdom but ones I have long agreed with.

Two reports promote people-led local solutions – Big Lottery Fund strategy and a Locality campaign

Two launch events today promote more local control and citizen involvement in the delivery of services and the development of community projects. However, I think there is a very valid argument more generally for local contracting, because it it will be increasingly important to make the most of local assets and relationships as public bodies face more cuts.
