Editorial by RNI, June 2015

“Intellectual Capital and Business Innovation”, by Sophie MIGNON*, Elisabeth WALLISER**

Today, the value of both products and companies is derived, to the extent of 80%, from the intelligence injected into them: we have entered the society of knowledge. The invisible has come to take precedence over the visible. We are clearly experiencing a new scientific and technological revolution on a larger scale than its predecessors. In this emerging “new world”, the intangible has become dominant, for example through the role of information and knowledge circulating in the networks, generating new uses and products on the market, and consequently leading to renewed organisational practices… This new situation is unsettling production and market systems, and calling into question the behaviours of the actors concerned, particularly in firms and their management methods.

It can be argued that the more developed an economy is, the greater its intangible component compared to the strictly tangible component, as regards both production and consumption.

In short, this predominance of the intangible is leading to both new “economic models” and upheaval in existing business models. Therefore, we need to review management and governance methods, as well as the systems for “incorporation” and valuation of the associated assets-flows-performances. It can be considered that analysis of this new intangible economy calls for an entirely new paradigm breaking away from the economic, legal and management analysis framework used in the traditional market economy.

The special issues of Innovations. Revue d’Economie et de Management de l’Innovation and the Journal of Innovation Economics and Management present a collection of research on this question in a cross-disciplinary perspective. The objective is to show the link between innovation and intangibles. While innovation is a key factor in organisations’ competitiveness and durability, it is inevitably accompanied by intangible input and output.

In terms of input, innovation is built on knowledge, skills and dynamic capacities but also on the creativity of the individuals who make up organisations’ human capital. Innovations are rooted in codified knowledge (warehouses, mapping, procedures…) but also on more tacit knowledge sharing through socialisation mechanisms and more informal meetings. Beyond the simple “information capital” and its maintenance over time, we need to look at the formation of the “social capital” between a firm and its suppliers, clients, advisors, experts, etc.

In terms of output, innovation is expressed through brands, reputation, patents, labels, and so on, which enable the organisation to stand out from its competitors. This results in product innovations based on new usages and modes of consumption, managerial innovations related to new ways of organising groups, etc., which require adjustment of the institutional rules (legal, tax, accounting and financial rules).
