Trust as Intangible Asset ‑ Enabling Intellectual Capital Development by Leadership for Vitality and Innovativeness pp244-255
Abstract: Trust has become an essential intangible asset in organizations and leadership. Trust promotes social order and cooperation in workplace relationships. It is a resource that creates vitality and enables innovativeness. The paper discusses and examines the highly timely topic of trust from the human intellectual capital (HIC) perspective. More specifically, the focus is on the role trust plays in renewing intellectual capital by leadership. In the paper, trust is viewed in a relational context describing the positive expectations of a respectful human behaviour. Originality of the paper is based on the two ideas of both theoretical and practical significance. First, exploring and conceptualizing trust as intangible asset, resource and skill in organizations. Second, examining how trust in leadership enables HIC development and how it affects. The paper provides a novel view into managing intangibles, since trust as intellectual resource and a leadership skill in relation to HIC development have hardly been examined integrated. The main point highlights the importance of leadership by trust in enabling the growth and utilization of HIC. The paper advocates the idea that, in managing knowledge, it is important to increase understanding of the interaction among different aspects of KM. The value intangible assets, such as trust, add to human resource development (HRD) is multiple and still poorly understood. The paper presents also two real life case studies of how leadership by trust enables vitality and innovativeness in organizations. The case studies examine the sharing of tacit knowledge and co‑creation with customers.

Intellectual Capital and Innovation: A Case Study of a Public Healthcare organisation in Europe pp361-372
Abstract: This research study focuses on innovation and the Human, Structural, and Relational components of Intellectual Capital, using Santos‑Rodrigues et al. (2011) research proposal as a framework. It aims to investigate the influence of Intellectua l Capital on a public Healthcare organisations capability for innovation. Sixty five of the sixty eight questionnaires administered to hospital managers and leaders between July and August of 2011, were used in the research. The study suggests that a rel ationship exists between the incentives to innovate (a dimension of Human Capital) and the innovation created, with trust being the only Structural Capital dimension related with the innovation adopted. It was found that networks and alliances (a dime nsion of Relational Capital), is the only dimension simultaneously related with the innovation created and adopted constructs, hence, Relational Capital being the only Intellectual Capital construct related simultaneously with both innovation creation an d adoption. The research further suggests that there is a direct relation between Human Capital and innovation, principally with the innovation created. The Structural Capital construct was found to be partly related with the Innovation Adoption construct .
