From liberal to conservative: shifting cultural policy regimes in post-Soviet Russia

In this paper, we analyze the evolution of Russian cultural policy from the end of the Soviet era through the current against the framework of welfare state regimes. The end of the Soviet Union 25 years ago ushered in a decade of liberalization marked by a withdrawal of the state from cultural responsibility and hopes that market demand and private support would emerge to fill in the void. With the latter hampered by the economic hardships of the transition and the loss of philanthropic traditions after more than 70 years of communism, a liberal policy regime did not take firmly hold and has gradually been replaced by a new cultural policy consensus more akin to a conservative welfare regime, marked by a return of the state to a more dominant role with the support of core cultural policy constituencies.

Happiness and the city: an empirical study of the interaction between subjective well-being and city satisfaction

This paper introduces and applies an assessment method designed to measure city satisfaction in relation to the subjective perception of individual well-being. A structural model of residential satisfaction assessment is developed. To test the model, we have carried out an empirical research study, employing a representative sample (1636 respondents) of the residents of Perm, a large Russian city. We demonstrate both the direct and indirect influence of satisfaction with urban services, respondents’ individual characteristics, life satisfaction, and happiness on overall city satisfaction. Moreover, we attempt to explore the causality between subjective well-being and city satisfaction. Our approach is aimed to provide local policy makers with a more refined tool for decision making in urban policy, which could be of great importance as far as the city authorities need to set up priorities in urban management, especially under the pressure of limited budgets. The results allow for the illustration of the cumulative and hierarchical nature of city satisfaction, and highlight the relation of various life and urban domains and their influence on happiness, life satisfaction and city satisfaction.

Implementation of performance management in regional government in Russia: evidence of data manipulation

Public sector performance measurement may be affected by data manipulation. This study empirically explores strategies of data manipulation used by civil servants at the regional level in Russia. 25 civil servants from three regional governments were interviewed. Two strategies were identified: “prudent” bureaucrats kept a low profile by reporting “more-normal-than-real” figures; “reckless” bureaucrats aimed at inflating figures to maximize credit. Systematic application of these strategies produced a detectable bias in the overall performance data which was estimated using a nation-wide performance dataset covering the period of 2007-2011 (with a unified list of over 300 indicators from 83 regional governments).

Integrated roadmaps for strategic management and planning

Roadmapping is a complex long-term planning instrument that allows for setting strategic goals and estimating the potential of new technologies, products, and services. Until recently, roadmapping was used mainly for strategic planning, either from a technological or amarket research perspective. Roadmaps emphasized either technological development or satisfaction of market demands but rarely both. Consequently, roadmaps either excessively stress the technology side, which might lead to technically sophisticated solutions that lack applicability, or overstress customer needs, neglecting business competence-building. Therefore, this paper develops a newintegrated roadmapping approach that combines these two perspectives: it focuses on strategic planning by firms and public authorities for the long run goals of social and economic development, bringing together the market “pull” and technology “push” approach. This dual technique provides the potential for alternative means of choosing the most effective resource allocation. Integrated roadmaps include the various development stages of prospective innovations, e.g. stages of the existing innovation value chain, including R&D, manufacturing,market entry, services, andmarket expansion as well as prospective stages, including new technologies, products and services. The value of integrated roadmapping lies in its responsiveness to the challenges in innovation planning schemes for firms and sectors; it takes into consideration both future market requirements and the future resource basis for satisfying market needs, an approach not currently offered by traditional techniques. The paper develops a roadmapping methodology that can be used for planning firms' and public authorities' long-term innovation strategies.

Investimenti Diretti Stranieri in Russia e Nuove Opportunità/ Прямые зарубежные инвестиции в России: новые возможности развития/ Direct Foreign Investments in Russia and New Opportunities

Данный аналитический материал опирается на анализ и синтез четырех видов информации -- впечатления от посещения российских заводов западных корпораций, результаты интервью с менеджерами зарубежных корпораций различного уровня, анализ публичной отчет- ности и материалов прессы. В 2012-2013 гг. были посещены и проведены интервью с руководи- телями 17 заводов 15 корпораций, с целью понять особенности орга- низации инновационной деятельности как на самом предприятии, так и шире, в российском подразделении международной корпорации или в целом в глобальной корпорации. На следующем этапе исследования нам захотелось понять, как в целом построен процесс развития российских предприятий международных компаний, по каким критериям раз- рабатываются, каким образом «защищаются» и какими методами реа- лизуются проекты развития новых производств (новых линий, цехов и очередей существующих заводов, покупка и строительство новых заводов). Это потребовало контактов с ответственными за разработку и реализацию подобных проектов. В 2014-2016 гг. удалось провести интервью с несколькими десятками высших менеджеров подразделе- ний, ответственных за развитие российского бизнеса корпорации или всего бизнеса в Восточной Европе, а в одном случае – провести интер- вью Генерального директора глобальной корпорации. В ряде случаев интервью проводились ежегодно в 2014-2016 гг. Кроме того, в 2014 и в 2016 годах были проведены опросы руководителей российских заводов западных корпораций. После серию интервью, проведенных летом 2015 года, почувствовалась нехватка количественных данных о развитии российских производств западных корпораций. Встал вопрос -- сколько всего за послед- ние годы в России построено новых заводов западных корпораций? Официальная статистика в данном вопросе была бессильна, но задачка в целом оказалась не слишком сложной. Дело в том, что поддерживая славную советскую традицию, западные корпорации стремятся при- глашать на церемонии торжественного открытия своих новых рос- сийских мощностей высших представителей государственной власти.  Таким образом, из анализа пресс-релизов российских подразделений международных корпораций, просмотра федеральной и особенно местной прессы и теленовостей, а также путем использования материалов уникального блога «Новые заводы и цеха» сайта www.sdelanounas.ru нам удалось идентифицировать практически все новые заводы, введенные в строй в России западными корпорациями в 2012-2016 гг. и значительную часть введенных в строй очередей, цехов и линий на существующих заводах. Кроме того, мы провели анализ публичной отчетности корпораций, активно при- сутствующих на российских рынках, а также размещенных в открытом доступе материалов пресс-конференций руководителей данных корпо- раций. Весь этот массив разнородной информации, подвергнутый разноо- бразным методам анализа, служил одной цели – воссоздать недавнюю историю и текущее состояние российских производств западных ком- паний, уловить логику корпоративных действий и предугадать дальнейшие наиболее вероятные (а также маловероятные, но крайне желательные) шаги международных корпораций относительно своих производств в России.

Job satisfaction, blat and intentions to leave among blue-collar employees in contemporary Russia

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine antecedents of intentions to leave among blue-collar employees in domestic Russian organizations. Design/methodology/approach – The study is based on a sample of 1210 blue-collar employees in 80 domestic organizations across 14 industries and eight regions in Russia. Findings – The analysis shows that wage satisfaction is the strongest negative predictor of Russian employees’ intentions to leave compared to core job-related and interpersonal relations satisfaction. For non-blat employees, the relationships with intentions to leave are negative and significant for all three types of satisfactions, whereas for employees with blat only the relationship between core job-related satisfaction and intentions to leave is significant. Originality/value – The present study (i) reveals that wage satisfaction is the most important but not the only way to retain blue-collar employees in Russia and (ii) points towards the complex nature of blat’s influence on employees’ organizational behavior in contemporary Russian organizations. By so doing, the analysis provides a still rare empirical illustration of how relationships and variables explaining turnover intentions and its antecedents are contingent on economic, cultural and institutional contexts.
