The UK Department of Trade and Industry’s 2007 Value Added Scoreboard reveals that the most successful and sustained wealth creation results from ongoing investment, especially in innovation and skills. The annual study uses value added by European companies (the difference between sales and cost of bought-in materials and services) as a measure of their economic contribution and uses value added per £1 of staff and depreciation costs (wealth creation efficiency) as a key performance measure.
