Very little research has focused on applying the intellectual capital (IC) concept in strategy development in social service non-profit organizations (SSNPOs). After reviewing the literature, my central argument in this paper is that IC is a potent avenue for pursuing social service organizational agendas; that is to reconcile SSNPOs' social and commercial objectives. Thus, I contribute to the literature by theoretically arguing that IC can be utilized in non-profit strategy development processes. I propose an IC conceptual framework which helps non-profit managers to visualize IC and its components in SSNPOs. Finally, I discuss the framework's implications for effective strategy development.
