The Soul of Enterprise: Dialogues on Business in the Knowledge Economy (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015)

The world’s economy has been transformed from a twentieth-century materials-based economy to the Age of the Knowledge-Based Economy — and the currency of this realm is ideas, imagination, creativity, and knowledge. According The World Bank, 80% of the developed world’s wealth now resides in human capital.

Written by Ronald Baker and Ed Kless, hosts of The Soul of Enterprise: Business in the Knowledge Economy, the popular radio show on Voice America’s Business Channel, The Soul of Enterprise: Dialogues on Business in the Knowledge Economy sounds the clarion call that organizations can no longer ignore this seismic shift that has occurred in the economy since 1959. The Soul of Enterprise introduces the three components of Intellectual Capital — human capital, social capital, and structural capital — and how to leverage them to create wealth in today’s economy, by revealing:

* The physical fallacy — why wealth no longer consists of tangible things, but of ideas, imagination and knowledge from human minds
* The best learning tool ever invented: After Action Reviews
* Why Frederick Taylor and the Scientific Management movement was a fraud and the wrong focus for knowledge workers
* The fact that effectiveness always and everywhere trumps efficiency
* The First Law of Pricing: All value is subjective
* The Second Law of Pricing: All prices are contextual
* The Morality of Markets: Doing well and doing good
* Why your organization — and you — need to be driven by a higher purpose than profit

The Soul of Enterprise will inspire and challenge readers to unlock the enormous financial and competitive power hidden in the intellectual capital of their organizations and knowledge workers
