Bengtsson, Mattias (2003)
Department of Business Administration
Abstract
Problems: What is human capital? How is a knowledge worker’s human capital cultivated? In what way can an impresario help a knowledge worker to cultivate and capitalise on his or her human capital?
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the impresario approach on talent with today’s knowledge workers and their human capital. A visualisation of such an approach might lead to ways of assisting knowledge workers to cultivate and capitalise their human capital. Method: An Impresario Approach on human capital was created to fulfil this purpose. The Impresario Approach was built with the help of a paradigm over the components the impresario relates to.

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the impresario approach on talent with today’s knowledge workers and their human capital. A visualisation of such an approach might lead to ways of assisting knowledge workers to cultivate and capitalise their human capital. Method: An Impresario Approach on human capital was created to fulfil this purpose. The Impresario Approach was built with the help of a paradigm over the components the impresario relates to. These components include the impresarios that were studied in an empirical research on their ways to assist their clients. It was complemented with a research on the academic field of human capital concerning the content and the cultivation of it together with ways to brand the capital in order to capitalise on it. The Impresario Approach was analysed and concluded into a way of viewing knowledge worker’s human capital and how it can be cultivated and capitalised.
Thesis: The Impresario Approach can be applied to assist a number of different types of knowledge workers. The approach puts great demands on the impresario to command five roles. The impresario and the knowledge worker can be very successful at attaining their goals, if the impresario is skilled in the roles and if the knowledge worker has certain attributes and is motivated to achieve the goals they set out together.
