Century -The Knowledge Century
"Intellectual Capital,"2 "Knowledge Capital,"3 "Intellectual Assets," and "Knowledge Assets" are but a few of the terms used somewhat interchangeably with reference to the intangible assets of an enterprise. Organizations are familiar with valuing tangible assets like buildings, equipment, machinery, and inventory. However, tabulation of tangible assets does not take into account the significant values associated with intangible assets like know-how, experience, intuition, and creativity, to name a few.

"If knowledge is the greatest source of wealth, then individuals, companies and nations should invest in the assets that produce and process knowledge."6
Experts in management, finance, accounting, strategy, and human resources agree that knowledge assets represent enormous untapped wealth. Depending upon how the knowledge management market is sliced, it is projected to be a $14-$70 billion a year marketplace within a few short years. However, despite this unprecedented agreement among a plethora of experts (who rarely agree so unanimously), few information technology tools have responded to the challenge adequately. Among the current offerings, even products like groupware have not become the go-to tools that their proponents had hoped. "It is now clear that no one can provide the information knowledge workers and especially executives need, except for themselves...few executives have so far made much of an effort to decide what they need, even less, how to organize it. They have tended to rely on the producers of data -- IT people and accountants to make these decisions for them. But the producers of data cannot possibly know what data the users need so that they become information. Only individual knowledge workers, and especially individual executives, can decide how to organize their information so that it becomes their key to effective action."7
"60 percent of chief executive officers surveyed responded that knowledge management is absolutely critical to the success of their company... they're having a harder time defining a knowledge management strategy that suits their needs."8
Leader has invented a revolutionary web-based system for knowledge/intellectual capital banking called Digital Leaderboard® that is completely user organized and can be implemented rapidly on every desktop in any enterprise of any size. Leader's products and services move the knowledge management dialog from theory to reality. Leader's research teams, led by Founder & Chariman Mike McKibben, have successfully unraveled these knowledge management mysteries.
Knowledge worker productivity is the biggest challenge of the 21st century management challenges.10
"As intangible assets skyrocket at many companies, measuring them takes on a new urgency."9
