ARIAS-PEREZ, Jose; LOZADA, Nelson  and  HENAO-GARCIA, Edwin. Intellectual Capital Management and Performance of University Research Groups in an Emerging Country, Colombia Case. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.4, pp.181-188. ISSN 0718-0764.

The objective of the article is to analyze the relationship between the management of intellectual capital and the performance of university research groups (PURG). A cluster and variance analysis (ANOVA with post-hoc comparisons) was performed to identify differences in significant means with data obtained from a sample of 288 university research groups in Colombia. The results show the existence of three types of groups: leaders, followers and laggards. We find significant differences in the publication of scientific articles among them that have to do with two specific aspects of the management of intellectual capital: i) the systematic evaluation of the competences and knowledge mapping of the group, and ii) the existence of a clear strategy to develop new skills and acquire new knowledge. In conclusion, it is necessary to rethink the traditional approach of intellectual capital for universities, which limits the construction and monitoring of performance indicators.

Keywords : intellectual capital management; research groups; performance indicators.
