Literature focused on knowledge assets often treats the individual components, such as human, social and organisational capital, separately. Although useful, this does not add to our understanding of how value is generated through the integration of various knowledge assets. This issue is at the heart of this chapter. We review the literature on the various forms of capital that generate value. We do so from a viewpoint that moves beyond the linear or normative perspective of how each individual form of capital can be leveraged for success. That is to say, we view knowledge and knowledge assets, such as human, social and organisational capital, as collectively constructed, a social good and integrated. As such, these assets do not generate value in isolation.
