Main purpose of this study is to identify the relationship between the intellectual capital owned by the businesses and innovative work behaviors, and to find out how to reflect that relationship on the business performance. Studies carried out so far points out the presence of a positive relation between intellectual capital and business performance (Bontis, 1998; Bontis, Keow & Richardson, 2000; Bontis et al., 2010; Goh, 2005; Erkus, 2006; Akdag, 2012). Building up such relation depends on transferring the intellectual capital into innovation. And if the intellectual capital transferred into innovation is managed successfully within the businesses, it triggers performance development (Narvekar & Jain, 2006: 178-179). (C) 2015 The Authors.
