In every profession, it is important for practitioners to remain current with new and emerging issues and problem solving techniques. The pace of change in technology, law, customer preferences, and a range of other areas make that particularly true in the financial services, health care payer and provider, and media and entertainment industries.
At Value Improvement Associates, we believe strongly that our best learning comes from working closely with our clients on their most important issues. Periodically, however, we feel that it is also important for us to step back, aggregate our recent experiences, do additional research if necessary, synthesize our findings, and present them to our clients in a way that is most useful to them. This means that we make it our business to invest in our clients by sharing this information in one-page perspectives, published articles, speeches, focused seminars, and many other ways.
We also believe that new books that advance the purposes of management science are published all the time. For that reason, we read many of these books, select the best among them, and provide a review here on our web site.
In businesses that are driven by ideas, intellectual capital is the fuel.
