|Finance Community - Heads Down (Up?)
The National Business Meeting of the AICPA (April 19-23) in San Diego, California, picked up on managing the Intangible Assets as a sub-theme. There were several sessions dedicated to topics related to the knowledge economy. ENTOVATION colleague Brett Knowles, co-founder of Know Inc. (Toronto, Canada), delivered a presentation - "Products and Services Available in the Intellectual Capital Arena." This included a description of recent initiatives, a product review and a preview of the contents of their new web sites: KnowledgeShop and KnowledgeCreators.
In a session entitled "Intellectual Capital and the Knowledge Economy: An Emerging Financial Leadership Role," Debra Amidon hosted the new monograph - Collaborative Innovation and the Knowledge Economy - which is co-sponsored by the Canadian Management Accountants, the CEFM sub-group of the AICPA and CAM-I. Copies are available in both English and French through e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
