We are now in the age of various capitals like money, facility, real estate, movable property, structure, system, information, relations, human resource, intellectual property, knowledge, intelligence, and dynamic knowledge wisdom, which will have much influence in production, sales, management, economy, society, country, and the world. Some of them are tangible and the others are intangible. According to the tangible capitals, we have been developing the management methods here and there in real usages, but according to the intangible capitals, it is very hard to say that we are able to treat and manage the intangible capitals in an appropriate method by a proper intention. It is just because they are themselves quite ambiguous to understand and treat. Therefore, the present situations of the capitals, a treating method in principle, and a future direction of the capitals are studied by introducing the basic idea of “Intangible Capital Management Method as Dynamic Knowledge Wisdom.”
