For IC management is offered unique and simple virtual tool "Virt Trend Chart" (VTC). It simulates the basic functions of popular methods of IC measurement, and the tool of the European innovative policy. The research of 194 organizations of the European innovative networks, 62 Russian innovative centers, 31 transnational corporations, 21 Russian large commercial organizations (CO) and 103 universities are carried out by means of VTC indicators. The analysis of indicators has allowed defining character and quality of IC management, trends of IC development. Managers of strategy and innovative policy by means of VTC can: independently estimate efficiency of business and its infrastructure; display the future successes of the organizations; reveal tendencies of development. Unique advantages of VTC are: it aggregates the basic advantages of known methods and models, including IC Index, Scandia Navigator, and IC Monitor (Edvinsson and Malone, 1997; Stewart, 1999; Skyrme, 2002; Sveiby, 2006). VTC is objective, does not depend on the human factor, it is accessible, but the main thing adequately considers the important component of knowledge economy - developing infrastructure of information-telecommunication technologies, features of network economy. Moreover, VTC reflects balanced of IC indicators to the strategic purposes and tasks. The Virtual IC Model - is a network model, which simultaneously displays the new virtual organization, new management system, and external influences of an environment - the market, branch, competitors by whom it is possible to identify and measure in network by means of searching systems and their thematic catalogues. Offered ideas and model have not analogues.
