The International Forum on Knowledge Asset Dynamics (IFKAD) aims to create a ‘cognitive laboratory’ for discussing and learning about the role, theory and practice of knowledge asset management for sustaining organisations’ value creation dynamics. The focus of the forum is mainly on management issues and it is going to bring together research students, young researchers, academics, managers and policy makers interested in understanding the knowledge foundations of performance improvements, business success and wealth creation. The forum is intended to represent a unique opportunity for up-dating and exchanging views on current and future managerial and research trends of the knowledge interpretation of the organisation. The forum’s hope is to create an occasion to acquire and develop managerial insights and innovative ideas.
