The significance of intangible resources for business success has evidently increased. Analyses have indicated some intellectual capital factors as the most prominent and important, yet the impact on the intra- and inter-organisational innovation ecosystems has not been analysed thoroughly. This contribution seeks to close this gap and draw conclusions with regard to drivers of innovation and related differences between manufacturing and service enterprises. The analysis of the correlation between intellectual capital and innovation capabilities allows statements regarding those intellectual capital factors, onto which enterprises should focus to foster innovation. The qualitative content-related analysis of the 38 intellectual capital statements of German enterprises with regard to new and different types of innovation management methodologies allows the identification of existing gaps in intellectual capital management.
