Impact of Social Capital on the Process of Commercialisation of Knowledge in an Organisation


  • Koba Nataliya V.



The goal of the article lies in identification of the essence of social capital, understanding its structure, forms and features and study its role and influence upon the process of commercialisation of knowledge in an organisation. Having analysed the "social capital" notions from existing scientific literature, the article specifies its essence. Having analysed and systemised theoretical provisions of various researchers, the article provides a structure of social capital, specifies its main forms, types, common and distinguishing features with respect to other types of capital of an organisation. Having generalised results of studies of foreign scientists, the article identifies influence of social capital upon the process of transformation of knowledge in an organisation. Using example of project organisations of the gas industry of Ukraine, the article analyses the outer contour of the social capital, in the result of which it establishes direct impact of social capital on commercialisation of knowledge in these organisations. The article grounds a necessity of ensuring the positive character of this influence by modern organisations. Development of theoretical and methodical provisions and practical recommendations on managing the social capital of organisations as a decisive factor of ensuring commercialisation of their knowledge are considered to be priority directions of studies.
