Abstract: The objective of this paper is to build a theoretical framework, which helps researchers and practitioners understand the influences of organisational commitment on intentions to quit and intellectual capital. The study also sheds light on the role of intellectual capital in improving a firm's market value and innovation performance. This research paper reviews literature on organisational commitment, intentions to quit, intellectual capital, firm's market value, and innovation performance using a model that encompasses three dimensions of intellectual capital: human, social and organisational capital. The framework developed in this study suggests that a reduction in organisational commitment will have a major effect on employees' intentions to quit, which is a function of their turnover rate. This will in turn affect intellectual capital, and therefore the effectiveness of organisations and their market values and innovation performance.

Keywords: organisational commitment; intention to quit; intellectual capital; firm's market value; innovation performance.
