Abstract

The links to competitiveness through development of human capital resources has been less than clearly articulated in the scholarly literature. There are many conceptual papers and discussion with respect to the heterogeneous nature of the tangible and intangible assets and their links to performance, but disproportionately smaller direct empirical support papers. This is due to a lack of clarity and contradictions on appropriate definitions, terminologies and concepts of interest in research studies. Set in the knowledge and skills intensive area of healthcare medical management, the paper focuses on developing human capital resource through the acquisition of distinct capabilities and competencies leading to subsequent affect on performance. The goal is to clarify component measurement constructs, links to performance and value gained for possible further future research.
