Abstract
The article presents the results of the research, the purpose of which was to develop a methodology for assessing the potential of a region for the development of its human capital. The proposed methodology is based on a quantitative model for the analysis of indicators of the demographic, economic, educational qualification, psychophysiological and innovation components of a region’s potential that determine the conditions for the development of human capital. When developing the methodology, an index method and a linear scaling method were used. As an object of testing and verification of the methodology, regions belonging to the Siberian Federal District were taken. The object of the research was the Kemerovo region. The calculations that illustrate the application of the proposed methodology, allowed to carry out rapid diagnosis and characterize the potential of the Kemerovo region in the development of human capital in the region. At the same time, the suitability of the methodology was established to identify priority measures to reduce the gap in the values of indicators of the potential of leading regions and outsider regions, to search for the most effective regional management practices that contribute to the development of human capital at the regional level. The results of the assessment of the potential of a region for the development of human capital can be, first of all, the information basis for the activities of regional authorities in the formation of priority goals and objectives, programs and projects for the strategic management of regional socio-economic development aimed at creating conditions for the development of human capital in the territory. The application of a methodology for assessing the potential of a region can be embedded in the process of developing and making strategic and operational decisions on the development of human capital.
