President of DB&A Publishes Book Chapter on Intellectual Capital
Sunday, January 21, 2007

David Buczek, The President of DB&A, published a chapter titled Retaining Intellectual Capital: A Manager's Perspective in the book Human Resources Management: Contemporary Issues, Challenges and Opportunities (© 2007, Information Age Publishing, Charlotte). The chapter suggests that in many firms intellectual capital is the core value that the enterprise has to offer its customers or constituents, and therefore, it must be managed aggressively. 

In situations where organizations are experiencing "brain drain", or the loss of experienced and tenured staff who possess key intellectual capital, it is imperative to have a structured plan to capture and reposition that intellectual capital before it literally walks out the door.  The chapter then provides practical steps to accomplishing effective intellectual capital management.
