The recognition of knowledge as a key success factor in determining firm performance has laid the groundwork for scholars to explore intellectual capital in a variety of contexts including in relation to the business development, innovation management and social systems.Intellectual capital is defined as a group of knowledge assets that are owned and controlled by an organization that create value.It is divided into three components, namely human capital, structural capital and relational capital.Prior empirical studies on intellectual capital indicate that there were conflicting results between intellectual capital and its components, and firm performance.This paper tends to explore the conflicting results that link between them. The unit of analysis for the study is Small and Medium Enterprises operating in Malaysia.
