Intellectual Capital Statement – Made in Germany
Drawing up an ICS – an intellectual capital statement, or Wissensbilanz in German – enables companies from all sectors to tap into new opportunities. It is an essential tool for preserving their competitive edge and keeping their business successful in the knowledge-based economy.
The Fraunhofer Academy’s course leading to an accredited qualification as an ICS Moderator, which is run in collaboration with the German research group Arbeitskreis Wissensbilanz, is the first comprehensive course of study to provide a uniform, recognized procedure for systematically managing and reporting intellectual capital, or ‘soft success factors’.
The “Wissensbilanz – Made in ” method on which it is based draws on international experience and is the most broadly applied approach in among all industries and across all sizes of company.
This workshop-based approach to creating an ICS helps participants gain new insights into how their own company operates. It also provides concrete results in the form of prioritized recommendations for action to foster their company’s development and consistent reporting to ensure the structured communication of intellectual capital.
