Social networks are important in the idea of Intellectual Capital (IC) because this was how it began. A Network is known as a connection or association between social objects over time (Tichy et al, 1979). Hence, a social network is the breeding ground for intellectual capital, as well as value creation. The question of whether or not knowledge can be measured ties in with the concept of Intellectual Capital (IC). Intellectual Capital is yet another valued asset to an organisation that Thomas A. Stewart states bears no ultimate physical form yet still possesses the capacity for generating profit. It is a representation of the actual hidden value of a company and promotes ‘Learning Organisations’ which are to equip the organisation for advancement in value. It pushes forward the ideology that other than the numbers accrued over a financial period, which is paper worthy, there are other aspects of a company- otherwise ignored, that possess characteristics worthy of advancing an organisation in value. What constitutes IC will be developed in the essay. However, how does it thrive may be a question.
