Abstract: Having identified that there exists, as yet, no MaturityModel for Intellectual Asset (IA) Governance in Small andMedium Enterprises (SMEs), the authors have attempted todevelop theoretically one such Model and present it in this paper.Twelve dimensions of IA governance and enterpriseinfrastructure for IA governance were identified. The model alsodistinguishes among five archetypes according to their level ofsophistication. It is hoped that the inclusion of the keyinfluencing factors that drive the IA governance behaviour ofSME as pinpointed by the authors will make this model acomplete one.
