Organizational social capital: self-regenerational ability in organizations

This paper establishes a hypothetical theory which asserts that social capital is the source from which communities of practice may emerge. This is a worthful aspect for organizations since it helps towards the self-regenerative ability that allows them to co-develop. At the same time, this system feeds itself back, since communities of practice themselves contribute to strengthening the organizational social capital. This way, new practical corporations can emerge more easily from the confidence and knowledge acquired in previous processes.
