IC Growth (, a Knowledge Network Partner of the Silicon Valley World Internet Center, has developed a breakthrough methodology and software approach to creating value in the global enterprise. Intellectual Capital Assets now comprise most of stock value, yet Enterprise Management Systems have been unable to optimize capital use in the growth of these assets. Until now!

On January 29, IC Growth's CEO, Mr. Don Presson, and key members of his management team (Dr. Dennis Dugan, Senior Vice President of Product Development and Mr. Chris Hook, Vice President of Product Engineering) will provide an Executive Briefing on IC Growth's breakthrough metrics and software design.

The Briefing will cover:

  • a review of the crisis in Corporate Performance Management
  • the evolution of technologies in Corporate Performance Management
  • the ICG Economic Profit diagnostic approach: methodology, metrics, and software

The only competitive advantage left is the ability of organizations to grow their Intellectual Capital Assets faster than their competitors! Tangible assets are now commodities. Learn to view this new world of value creation from the new vantage point . . . critical to every organization from start-up to global enterprise.
