Buying organizational intellectual property

The other day, I was trolling through the mail logs making sure all was well when I noticed that my server could not deliver mail to one of my client’s alternate email addresses – let’s call it ABC.org. I was immediately on alert because this indicates either a problem with ABC.org’s mail server or domain name registration – and nine times out of ten, it is the latter. A bit of poking around with my tools indicated that indeed, ABC.org had expired – and that it had also been grabbed by third-party reseller who had no intention of playing nicely with the original owner of ABC.org…

Buying organizational capital structure

I’m heading out of town for the weekend so this will be a bit rushed, but the situation in Spain has me thinking that we need a new frame for understanding where we are both politically and economically. To be more specific, the most recent insults and humiliations being dealt to the citizens of Spain make clear that we have now gone beyond financialization and are in uncharted territory. The most recent outrage is the alleged €100 billion bank bailout (an Orwellian misnomer), for which Europe is imposing terms that are so pathological that they boggle the mind. The terms of…

Microsoft has quietly announced that it is delaying the release of a mobile client for its Dynamics CRM software to the fourth quarter. Previously, the company had provided details about the availability of a mobile service, which had been scheduled for Q2. In a posting last week on its Microsoft Dynamics blog, Dynamics Marketing Manager Dennis Michalis wrote that the company was delaying the availability of Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile, as well as delaying cross-browser support. Both were scheduled for the Q2 2012 Service Update, and both are now re-scheduled for Q4. No Explanation…

How to sell relational capital?

Why take a path to mediocrity when you can take a path to greatness? I have been reflecting lately on how much of the coaching work I do with business leaders is about helping people climb the ladder to becoming CEO and achieving stellar levels of compensation. This is all well and good, but there is a discrepancy between this and the heart of Masterful Coaching , which is about helping leaders do something to make a difference in their worlds. This point of view is expressed well in the title of my latest book: Your First Hundred Days, (and I would like to emphasis the subtitle)…

Definition of financial capital

Communists have long been a confused and conflicted bunch.  So would you be if you were trying to fit a square theoretical peg into the round hole of reality.  But one thing you kinda have to admire is their dogged persistence.  Against all theoretical and empirical evidence that Marxism is complete and utter hogwash, these guys just keep throwing down.  The ethos of Marxist ‘dialectics’ seems as alive and well as it’s ever been.  I get knocked down, but get up again and hit you with the same useless ideas I tried last time, you never gonna beat me down. Of course we must remember…

Explanation of structural capital

Watch the full 28-minute video at In this video Juan Ramón Rallo, economist and university professor in Madrid, and Alasdair Macleod of the GoldMoney Foundation talk about Austrian and Keynesian economics. Rallo sees growing interest in the teachings of Austrian economics, because it’s the only school that provides a theory of the business cycle in relation to monetary phenomena. Keynesian economics on the other hand fails to see the heterogeneity of the economy when talking about aggregate demand. Furthermore printing money and issuing new debt won’t solve structural problems…

How to sell customer capital?

As investors we are fortunate to meet with hundreds of companies. One of the first things, whether right or wrong, we do is to immediately try and put the company in a “bucket” in terms of what they are doing. This helps in identifying the market, competitors and better understand the value proposition. I love watching Paul Graham hosting his “Office Hours” live at TC Disrupt as you can watch him struggle to do this in real-time with the pitching companies. When we first met Nicolas and Daniel of AppDirect in 2010 we immediately understood what they were doing and why it was…

A pioneer in the Intellectual Capital was Karl-Eric Sveiby[Sveiby, K., 1989, 1997, 2001], in The Invisible Balance Sheet. It’s a key work in the development of thinking about Intellectual Capital. Then Intellectual Capital became popular in the early and mid 1990s. In the early and mid 1990s there was an increasing awareness in the business community that knowledge was an important organizational resource that needed to be nurtured, sustained, and if possible accounted. They realized that internal communication and information sharing was often lacking. Intellectual Capital…

How to buy human capital?

For the next week (or two), we’ll be sharing “audition” pieces from folks interested in being new staff writers at Get Rich Slowly. Your job is to let us know what you think of each of these writers. Pay attention, give feedback, and after a couple of weeks we’ll ask which writers you prefer. This article is from Will Crosswell , who says he’s a young guy who’s made some dumb moves financially. But he wants to learn. Dr. Moshe A. Milevsky, author of Your Money Milestones and tenured finance professor at the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto, Canada, had…

Canned Dreams By Gary M. Kramer and Michael Miller. Silverdocs, the all-documentary film festival held at the AFI Theatre in Silver Spring, MD, celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. There were many memorable films on a wide variety of subjects from competitors vying for the coveted spot as the human specimen at an Icelandic penis museum to a history of the Polaroid, and Navajo Indians suffering from XP, a rare and lethal disease. The best films chronicled people at work, or for whom work was a form of play (or vice versa). Here is a rundown of some notable titles. Arguably…

Valuating copyright

Caleb Mason has written a line-by-line analysis of the second verse of Jay-Z s 99 Problems  from a Fourth Amendment perspective.  It's a song I know best as the source of the title of one of Supernatural 's more misogynistic episodes, but the article offers a criminal procedure take.  There's a copyright angle, of course: though a line-by-line legal analysis is a clear fair use, a non-law review might never have allowed this to see print, because of rigid limits--sometimes outright bans--on quoting songs without permission. or authors who encounter permissions…
