Much is currently being made of the need to understand the value of an organisation's intellectual assets. While some of the stress put on formal knowledge audits may be perceived in many quarters as an esoteric waste of time, all will agree that experienced and talented staff who happily share their knowledge are highly valuable. In this regard, Management Today has been very fortunate. Geoffrey Foster, our deputy editor, retires this month after working at Management Today throughout its 30-year existence. His polished writing has informed more than a generation of Britain's managers and his editing has added clarity and edge to countless articles. His experience of business and management journalism has been invaluable in distinguishing material of genuine value from cant. Whether as intellectual asset, talented journalist or stimulating colleague, we thank him for his significant contribution to the success of Management Today.
