The indicators and ratios are based on our team's research work and on the analysis of the main models at the international level. Based on the development of a general study model, a specific model will be built that collects the key success factors for each firm, based on its characteristics, as well as those of the sector.

In this way, it will be possible to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the company, and then to study knowledge management mechanisms according to the specific characteristics of each firm. All this, with the purpose of achieving better results derived from a better use and generation of different types of knowledge.


Companies with an intellectual capital portfolio recognized and properly managed, will be in a superior strategic position to achieve better results, as well as an advantageous position regarding their competitors.
