INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL – A NEW SOURCE  

OF COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE 


Abstract  

Changes occurring in environment of organization require a new attitude toward the 

structure of its capital (taking human, structural, and intellectual capital into account) and toward the measurement of elements that are a major source of the development of its competitiveness and goodwill. Nonetheless, system of  reporting does not follow these changes. The 

paper presents the notion of intellectual capital both employing narrower and wider perspectives as well as historical outline of the way in which the concept of intellectual capital was 

developed  paying special attention to pioneering works connected with issues relating to 

measuring intellectual capital and classification of its structuralizing elements (the Konrad 

Group, K.E.Sveiby, L. Edvisson and M.S. Malone).
