Treść głównego artykułu


The purpose of the paper is to analyse the place of the methodology in the modern theory of human capital and its relationship with the methodology of strategic management of human capital. Based on the evolutionary development of conceptual ideas and provisions of the human capital theory, the categorical matrix of the modern theory of human capital is substantiated, where the intersection of such vectors as the level of scientific analysis and the angle of analytical consideration of the object of the human capital theory determine the logic of category location. The proposed structural understanding of the methodology allowed the author to build the hierarchical construction of the strategic management of human capital science, which defines the methodology of strategic management of human capital as a specifically scientific methodology. The developed structural and logical scheme in the methodology of the formation of human capital strategic management has five levels: identification, ideology, methodology, method, and optimisation. It includes the categorical matrix of the modern theory of human capital at the identification level. Further research of the topic is proposed to perform at the level of the method and at the level of optimisation, as they are connected with practical tools of strategic management of human capital.
