Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to increase the understanding of and knowledge about the value of personal qualities of individuals as a part of the concept of competence along with experience and education. These concepts are important in a knowledge-based society where human capital might be the most valuable resource. The purpose of the study is achieved through a qualitative study where the analysis is based on ideal types and the empirical material is gathered through interviews with employees at a mechanical workshop in a town on the northern coast of Sweden. The result of the study shows that personal qualities are important in comparison to experience and education. Keywords: Competence, personal qualities, education, experience
