5. Workshop on Visualizing, Measuring and Managing Intangibles and Intellectual Capital.

Looking at economics (the theory how economic works) as an intellectual product (MindWare) that is in the saturation of its development.
With an enhanced MindSet for structuring and quantifying the real reality it becomes possible to integrate the intangible resources and the subjective property of value.
On such a base it is now possible to gain new insights and create a new generation of options for mapping, modelling and reasoning the next economy.

These insights were presented at the workshop mentioned above October 8-9, 2009 in Dresden. Click HERE for more about that workshop.

You may download here a PDF with introduction and problem description.

An earlier state of this development was presented July 2004 at the 4th International "Conference on Theory and Practice in Performance Measurement and Management" in Edinburgh.
Here you may find more about the disclosure then.

More information about 'hybrid' value metrics and vector profiles can be found here.

Disruptive innovation in economics

Iterative innovations follow an s-curve that limits the progress depending on the basic assumptions that were taken at the start of the development. Starting with a new approach one could reach a new level of insights and quality well beyond old mindset.
