Abstract
Social capital is an important resource that receives inadequate attention from economic researchers and corporate managers because of lack of a framework for analysis under Vietnamese conditions. This research begins with an overview of theories of sociology and empirical economics in recent years. Basic characteristics of the social capital of companies found by these theories are network structure and quality of the network of companies. The research then combines theories of social capital and modern theories of business administration to work out methods of measuring the social capital of companies in three aspects: internal social capital, external social capital and social capital of corporate leadership. Finally, the research tries to build a framework for analysis of social capital and its effects on overall performance of the company through improvements in corporate competence (effective use of organizational resources) and entrepreneurship of managers.
