Quantifying Intangibles is vitally needed in the corporate decision making, but is not being applied with reasonable honor though it can be and has been... once upon a time.
This ability -- quantifying intangibles -- is also particularly revealing when dealing with activism vs corporate thinking. Corporate press releases and promotions -- as well as defenses of financial decisions -- frequently claim that their management has honored the intangibles that activists are promoting. With some sensitivity explorations, using corporate financial data, and the decision that they are claiming supports both finance and intangibles, the activist can guage the range of importance that the corporate decision makers are actually assigning to the intangibles.
