Competent intellectual capital is one of the most essential wealth that an organization requires in the present era of cutthroat competition. Operations management is nothing but management of operational processes in every big and small organization, and such activities constitute a major chunk of all organizational activities. Therefore, the present work targets to explore the association between intellectual capital and operational excellence, review of already conducted studies in the said area, and future directions through systematic literature review process. A total number of 165 articles provided by Scopus database (2010 to 2019) is used for analysis and interpretation. Bibliometric analysis and network analysis deliver significant clusters (operations management and optimization; intellectual capital and intellectual investment; knowledge management and decision support system; strategic planning and resource allocation; sustainable operations management and performance standards; behavioural research and change management), which is in turn a novel contribution of this article. The study concludes with a proposed conceptual model and key take away for researchers, academicians, and managers.
