Intellectual Capital Statement 2007


Intellectual Capital Statement – Made in Europe

To obtain competitive advantage in Europe, it is crucial for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to utilise knowledge efficiently and to enhance their innovation potential. Furthermore, reporting those intangible assets systematically to customers, partners and investors, as well as creditors has become a critical success factor. Thus, managing their specific “intellectual capital” (IC) becomes increasingly important for future-oriented organisations. Conventional balance sheets and controlling instruments are not sufficient any more, because intellectual capital like specific Know-How and good business relations are not considered so far. The Intellectual Capital Statement (ICS) is an instrument to assess, to report and to develop the intellectual capital of an organisation.

Due to the emerging need to cover intellectual capital the project InCaS “Intellectual Capital Statement – Made in Europe” had been initiated by the European Commission in course of the Sixth Framework Programme. The InCaS project is lead by the European SME association CEA-PME, Brussels, and Fraunhofer IPK Division Corporate Management, Berlin. The collective research project aims to make the existing international experiences applicable for European SMEs. In France the ICS implementation in 5 pilot-SMEs, one of which is BDL Institute, is coordinated by AFDEE.

The participating SMEs are to be qualified to take stock of their specific intellectual capital quickly and in a cost-effective way. Furthermore they should be enabled to edit and communicate the results towards important decision-makers. Thereby the acquisition of customers, partners and new employees is supported and furthermore the access to debt and equity capital is facilitated.

Below the ICS-model is illustrated and the main terms are explained in order to enhance the understandability of the following report.


ICS structural Model

The ICS structural model serves as the frame for the following analysis of intellectual capital and can be described as follows: The strategy including an analysis of the possibilities and risks in the external business environment provides the basis for the ICS. Based on these considerations the SME derives measures regarding the different dimensions of its intellectual capital.

Human capital includes competences, skills and motivation of the employees. The structural capital comprises all organisational and infrastructural instruments, which support the management and the employees in carrying out efficient business processes. The relational capital comprises the relationships to customers, suppliers and other partners as well as to the public.

The ICS reveals the actual value of the intellectual capital regarding its potential to support accomplishing the SME’s strategic objectives, production of goods and services and finally achieving business success. Thereby the significance of single IC factors is reflected, revealing the strengths and weaknesses and the highest potential for intervention.

Quantity in Leadership and in Professional skills is not sufficient to reach the

objectives, because of redeployment of BDL activities.

The team’s professional skills are not sufficient regarding the new activity.

Recrutment is necessary.

Management instruments represent the weakest part of the SC.

Systematic actions must be analised to know if they haven’t given results or are really adapted.

It is probably explained by an organisation remaining light and by the type of company. The Product innovation is satisfying, it is due to the constant seek of the manager to adapt the offers to the market demand.
