Abstract

Structural capital is the knowledge owned by an institution that arises in the extent that it is owned by its members, made explicit, codified and formally systematized; therefore the goal of this work is to identify the dimensions and indicators that glimpse the guideline of structural capital management in order to make a proposal for its evaluation that can be used to improve performance in higher education institutions. A review of 25 theoretical and empirical documents provides dimensions and overlapping and redundant indicators in: 1) processes: internal routines, systematization of information, innovation and new technologies, provision of technological equipment; 2) culture: organizational links, organizational learning, philosophy of management, research support, integration of coordination mechanisms; 3) structure: integration of internal research groups, databases creation, publication of scientific journals; 4) intellectual property: patents and prototypes, publications, lectures given, completed research projects.
