Abstract

The beneficial
consequences that intellectual capital exerts on various aspects of
organizational performance have become well established facts demonstrated in a
wide range of empirical studies. However, little knowledge exists on what
drives the development of intellectual capital itself. To bridge this gap in
the current understanding, this chapter examines the different organisational
aspects that enhance or hinder the development of intangible value drivers. It
is posited that two key groups of organisational factors are likely to impact
the development of intellectual capital: strategic and structural. The
theoretical model specifying these and their influence on the essential aspects
of intellectual capital is tested with partial least squares (PLS)–based
structural modelling, analysing a longitudinal dataset collected via two waves
of surveys in 2013 and 2017 from 96 Finnish organisations. The chapter
contributes to the literature on intellectual capital from a dynamic-temporal
perspective, and helps to inform managers and policy-makers about the strategic
and structural factors that influence the development of intellectual capital
in organisations.
