Wanted: Knowledge Assets – Dead or Alive?

Chris Collison

There have been a few threads on LinkedIn KM groups on the topic of “knowledge assets” recently. For many people, they are interchangeable with the term “information assets”, but sound sexier. I think the best knowledge assets combine these perspectives.

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. As my Merced Group Partner, Catherine Shinners , shared with me, Juergen Daum provided evidence in this direction in his book, Intangible Assets and Value Creation.

Treating People as People, Not as Tasks

Portals and KM

Now the percentage of tangible assets in the corporations in the S&P 500 has shifted from 66% in 1982 to 16% in 1999 and likely continues to fall (see  Juergen Daum, Intangible Assets and Value Creation ). In its place is the rise of intangible assets as the creators of wealth. Yet, as Louise points out many organizations are still managing people as though the wealth was created by tangible assets, machines, and people are just servants of these machines.
