Recently, there has been increasing interests on strategic orientation and intellectual capital as measures of competitiveness and their impacts on firm performance. However, there was little research which verify empirically the relationships among strategic orientation, intellectual capital and firm peformance. This research scrutinizes the effects of strategic orientaion on intellectual capital and firm performance. Based on literature review, research model and hypotheses are developed and empirically tested. The results are as follows. First, market orientaion and entrepreneurial orientation have positive effects on human capital, structural capital and customer capital which compose intellectual capital. Second, market orientaion and entrepreneurial orientation do not influence firm performance directly, but indirectly influence firm performace via intellectual capital. Third, the hypothesis about the relationship between intellectual capital and firm performacne is partially accepted. Only customer capital affects firm performance. Discussions and implications are followed.
