    The main source of competitive sustainable advantage, in the current socio-economic environment of the Knowledge Economy, resides basically in the Intellectual Capital. The main literature on Knowledge Management and Intellectual Capital was developed in the last decade of the 20th century, giving rise to the initial attempts for evaluating the latter concept. This paper examines firstly the origin and development of the Intellectual Capital and discusses the chief existing models. Then, the concept of Intellectual Capital is analysed together with the main applications and implementations of a particularly relevant model, the Intellects model. Finally, some conclusions and future research extensions are presented. En el entorno socio-económico actual de la Economía del Conocimiento, la principal fuente de ventaja competitiva sostenible de las organizaciones reside fundamentalmente en sus activos de naturaleza intangible, reflejados en su Capital Intelectual. En la última década del siglo XX, comenzó a desarrollarse la principal literatura de Dirección del Conocimiento y Capital Intelectual en las organizaciones, y con ella surgieron los primeros esfuerzos de evaluación de este último concepto. El presente trabajo muestra, en primer lugar, el origen, justificación y desarrollo del Capital Intelectual, para pasar seguidamente a destacar los principales modelos. A continuación, se analiza el concepto de Capital Intelectual, y seguidamente las principales aplicaciones y experiencias desarrolladas de uno de los modelos presentados, el Modelo Intellectus. Finalmente, se recogen las conclusiones del trabajo y posibles líneas de investigación a desarrollar sobre el tema
