One of the greatest challenges facing advocates of the intellectual capital movement is finding ways to measure and report on its content and effect. Some consider the measurement of human intellectual capital (HIC) to be a daunting exercise. At the same time, mission statements represent the cornerstone of most organizational strategies. While much research has been conducted on what the HIC construct might contain, none has attempted to understand the link between mission statements and their impact on the HIC construct. The tentative results reported in this study begin to fill the void. They show that mission statements may indeed have a valid place in the measurement and reporting of an organization's intellectual capital and they demonstrate the need for more research in this regard.
