The field of intellectual capital is at a crossroads. To move through the crossroads and to the next stage both practitioners and academics must substantially demonstrate the relevance of intellectual capital as a working discipline useful to achieve strategic goals and to improve levels of performance. While the field has generated a growing body of knowledge and practice over the last two decades, there is a need for both a great leap in how value can be generated and captured using an intellectual capital perspective, as well as acknowledging that there are multiple ways of knowing and different models for intellectual capital exchange. Much of this new development will come from an expanded, continuing dialogue between practitioners and academics.
