Intellectual Capital investigates how companies throughout Ireland are measuring their intellectual capital assets and how their efforts compare to those of the leading exponents of intellectual capital. This report: * includes a survey of twenty-eight Irish companies * highlights the importance of intellectual capital within the new economy * defines the role of the management accountant in the area of intellectual capital The authors conclude there is a recognition of intellectual capital and its measurement in Irish companies, but acknowledge the masurement and practices appear to be taking place in isolation rather than forming part of an overall intellectual capital management strategy.
