Innovation is the goal for the success and sustainable development of any enterprise in the knowledge economy. Employee innovative behavior (EIB) is an outward expression of the inner creativity of employees; it is a method used to develop creative products and a process through which employees generate and implement new ideas to improve performance or solve work-related problems. Adapted from resource-based theory, this study aims to develop a model for the relationship between knowledge sharing, intellectual capital (including 3 dimensions: human capital, structural capital and relational capital) and employee innovative behavior (EIB) in the information technology (IT) industry. Surveys were carried out by structured questionnaires to collect data using convenience sampling and yielded 385 responses from employees working at IT industry enterprises in Ho Chi Minh City. The research hypotheses were validated using structural equation modeling (SEM) approach. The results show that knowledge sharing positively impacts human capital, structural capital and relational capital. At the same time, the three dimensions of intellectual capital have significant encouragement on IT employee innovative behavior. Based on these results, the paper provided some implications for businesses in managing knowledge sharing and intellectual capital policies to enhance employee innovative behavior.
