Abstract: The generic capital system (GCS) is a value-based third generation knowledge management formal system structured by categories in a complete and consistent taxonomy. It was presented by Carrillo (2002) as a structure which allows to identify the relationships between the elements that create value when interacting as a system. In this study, we aim to advance towards the social dimension of the GCS according to youth's perspective. The objective is to construct and validate a scale to measure the perception of the GCS constructs. The methodology includes a deep literature review to identify the theoretical constructs underlying the capital GCS for subsequent construction of a scale to measure the perception of these constructs. The data was collected from 300 Brazilian university students. The results indicate that the identification of an integrated value perspective of the social life is possible. The scale succeeded in measuring the constructs underlying the CS.
