Sammanfattning: Purpose: The purpose of this study is to interpret in what ways the core values are expressed in managerial work as well as in what ways these values impact the managerial work in a knowledge intensive firm. Methodology: This study views the world as a social construction and has an interpretative starting point. The qualitative methodology is embraced, and the empirical data is collected through observations and eight semi-structured interviews with five different managers. The study has an abductive approach which perceives the study as a process. Theoretical perspectives: The theoretical framework presents three main areas of theory: core values, managerial work and identification theory. The main focus is core values. Empirical foundation: The study’s empirical gatherings consists of the observations in meetings and interviews with five managers, whereas four managers are from one department at Valcore AB. Valcore AB is a knowledge intensive firm. Conclusion: This study suggests that core values are expressed both implicitly and explicitly in managerial work. It is also suggested that the core values have an impact on managerial work in the form of trust and freedom. The study also indicates that the employees’ sense of identification with Valcore AB can explain why this impact does occur
