Tim Powell is a thought leader and organizational catalyst in knowledge strategy. His articles, books, and blog Competing in the Knowledge Economy address a range of opportunities and threats relating to intellectual property, brands, and other intangible enterprise assets.
Tim likes to build things. He is the developer of the Knowledge Value Chain®, a framework for assessing and improving the ROI and value of enterprise Data, Information, Knowledge, and Intelligence. A client’s interest in brand integrity led him to develop I-TRACK™, a work process for identifying brand attacks that was installed in major CPG and pharmaceutical accounts.
Prior to founding TKA, Tim held client-facing and firm management positions at KPMG, Opinion Research Corporation, and PwC. Though much of his work has been with large, complex organizations, he has also served on the boards of start-ups in health care and technology. Prior to his business career, he spent five years working with nonprofits and government agencies in children’s health and public transportation.
Tim’s next book, Managing Knowledge for Value: A Practical Introduction to the Economics of Knowledge, will be published in 2020.
