Gauge performance and make critical decisions with confidence


Executives and professional analysts have always struggled to measure the effectiveness of investment in intangibles such as R&D and advertising. Now, amkANALYTICS provides managers and investors with a precise measure to gauge the performance of intangible assets and to make critical business decisions with confidence. With our RQ™ and AQ™ measures, science replaces art, and validated statistics supplant intuition.

The company’s statistically validated approach has been embraced by Fortune 100 business leaders in industries ranging from consumer packaged goods to energy.
Their enthusiastic response to amkANALYTICS is based on the understanding that
the most valuable aspect of having the ability to measure the performance of these
critical measures is the insight and confidence to improve them.


The analytics have also been embraced by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
In 2010 the NSF awarded Professor Knott a grant to identify firms’ practices
associated with high RQ™. In 2012 they awarded her a follow-on grant to
quantify the impact on RQ™ of firm R&D practices in the NSF’s annual Business Research and Development and Innovation Survey (BRDIS). This is the first study to quantify the impact of these practices. amkANALYTICS provides the tools for enterprises to fully optimize their intangible investments. It does so by characterizing the fundamental economic relationship between firm capability (RQ™ and AQ™), investment, firm
growth and market value. Accordingly, amkANALYTICS also provides investors and analysts the tools they need to do fundamentals valuation for intangible assets.
