Implementing the research objectives, the Value Added Intellectual Coefficient (VAIC™) was used, the comparative analysis of indicators and indices was made (188 business entities traded on the Warsaw Stock Exchange) and in  enterprises selected due to  investment intensity in development of human capital. The method of comparative analysis was used. The research was carried between 1998 and 2003. This measuring model would be also useful to estimating efficiency of added value by tangible and intangible assets in Ukrainian enterprises.
