Moving Beyond Intellectual Capital to I-Stuff
Leading Companies Show You How
"Einstein in the Boardroom makes a great sequel to Edison in the Boardroom. Those readers who found the examples and war stories of Edison to be useful in their own IP-management activities will find the same qualities in Einstein. This resource will help anyone in the intangibles management community who seeks to go beyond intellectual property and understand and capitalize on the full range of a firm's intellectual capital."
--Julie Davis, coauthor, Edison in the Boardroom

--Beatrix de Russe, Executive Vice President, Licensing and Intellectual Property, Thomson
"Einstein in the Boardroom is a must-read for CEOs, CFOs, and board chairs facing the financial governance issues of share price, wealth creation, and value realization. When today's financial management systems may only deal with 20 percent of the value of the firm, Harrison and Sullivan offer a look at what a company can do to successfully create and extract value from the 'other' 80 percent, and they show you how other companies have done it!"
--Bill Swirsky, Vice President, Knowledge Development The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants
