Over centuries, the world of business has undergone many transitions to reach the so-called knowledge society that we live in today. After each transition, the importance of intellectual capital has ascended step by step and today has reached a stage where it is at the centre of the business operations. In effect, managers have started to appreciate the fact that investments made in the acquisition and development of these assets should be thought of as assets in the balance sheet rather than expenses in the income statement. From this it is clear that intellectual capital has a crucial role to play in the process of crafting an organisation's strategy and in realising its strategic goals. The book 'Intellectual capital management: a strategic perspective' attempts to introduce the role that the intellectual capital perspective can play in the strategy crafting process of an organisation. The book illustrates many of the benefits that the organisations can achieve by adopting aspects of the intellectual capital perspective. This book covers the place of intellectual capital in strategy theory, its role in the strategy crafting process, its contribution to the mergers and acquisitions strategy and its contribution to human resource management practices. The book further allows the reader to discover some of the contributions that Roos et al. have made to the day-to-day management of organisations by way of real-time case studies based on their consulting assignments.
