Abstract

The purpose of this empirical research study is test the relationship between strategic intent (mission, vision and goals) intellectual capital (i.e. human capital, structural capital, relational capital), and business performance targeting the sample of CKOs of 30 technology firms in the United States. A research instrument was developed from prior research and used to survey 30 CKO, CIO and VP of Knowledge Management executives from a random sample by CKO, CIO and VP of Knowledge Management title. The research approach was a correlation/multiple regression. Strong statistical support was found for the hypothesized relationships. Research limitations/implications –The sampling was a convenience sample and may not represent all CKOs in all industries. Practical implications – Intellectual capital measurement is of primary interest for senior executives of a cross section of firms in the USA and this sample is a basis for a larger study. Originality/value – The research reported is the first to investigate the issue of intellectual capital from a cross section of CKOs and other knowledge titled executives in the USA and the first to study directly the intellectual capital issue from the CKO viewpoint which is from the strategic intent perspective.
