The innovative capability of a firm is largely considered as the competitive advantage of an organization, and “The ability to innovate effectively is increasingly considered as a strategic resource.” (Gopalakrishnan & Damanpour, 1997: 22) but the root of this capability is still an incognita. We argue that it resides on the intangible assets of an organization and that the innovative capability of the firm is directly related to the capability of the organization to manage their intellectual capital. Consistently with Subramaniam & Youndt (2005), proposal to make the connection between knowledge and innovative capacity we argue that the innovative capability of a firm relies on the intangible assets of organization and propose the use of Intellectus Model, as a good source, to determine and mesure the relevance of intlectual capital elements on the Innovativeness of the firm.
