In Taiwan, the life insurance industry includes two crucial factors: first, it is one of main mechanisms that could significantly influence Taiwanese economic growth; and second, knowledge needed for high performance itself. However, not only is difficulty in professions growing, high flow rate of talent and an increase in, and extension of, diversity services, but the recent global economic depression is a drawback that is seriously damaging competitive advantage domestically and internationally. This phenomenon also obviously affects Taiwanese economic growth. Since the renaissance and auspicious future of Taiwanese life insurance industry might be expected by senior life insurance experts, the aim of this study is on the basis of its development nature, profit generation by effective knowledge
management, to overcome the highlighted difficulties by developing the critical criteria of IC and utilizing the developed IC criteria to explore the benchmark company.
