Information efficiency, information design and information system of an organization
New complex education program "Project seminar" developed in the Department of Applied Mathematics of Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM) belong to National Research University Higher School of Economics (NRU HSE) is presented. The aim of our program is to train students for needs of high-tech industry being equipped with ERP systems. The complex program based on Project-Based Learning concept supported with Business Game and practical training at the optical-electronic enterprise where students are involved in creation and implementation some modules/subsystems of ERP system. Thus students were educated in accordance with modern principles, which help them through studying and a research process to build their own learning schema and to get their training results approved by real useful application.
The author analyzes the functional logic behind the regime of “highly managed democracy” under Putin and the Putin-Medvedev tandem, with special emphasis on the role played by substitute pseudoinstitutions.
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 7th Enterprise Engineering Working Conference, EEWC 2017, held in Antwerp, Belgium, in May 2017. EEWC aims at addressing the challenges that modern and complex enterprises are facing in a rapidly changing world. The participants of the working conference share a belief that dealing with these challenges requires rigorous and scientific solutions, focusing on the design and engineering of enterprises. The goal of EEWC is to stimulate interaction between the different stakeholders, scientists as well as practitioners, interested in making Enterprise Engineering a reality. The 12 full papers and 4 short papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 40 submissions. They were organized in topical sections named: formalisms; standards and laws; business processes; normalized systems and evolvability; ontologies; and organization design.
The study presents the results of a survey of Russia's executives on their perceptions of the environment, strategies, and organizational climate of their companies and their own leadership style in two time periods: 2010–2012 and 2013–2014. We reveal the dynamics of fit among the environment, strategy, leadership, and organizational climate. The results suggest that Russian executives’ inability to delegate authority obstructs the proper realization of strategies better suited to turbulent business environments. Thereby, we may anticipate that Russian enterprises’ adaptation to new (post-sanctions) business realities will be slow and incomplete; misfits in organizational design will restrain the repertoire and impede the implementation of effective and efficient rescue measures.
Each mutual fund is characterized by its investment strategies, investment structure and the level of liquidity of shares. As a result, it’s too difficult to compare yield of mutual funds of different management companies as well as various types of funds in order to select the most suitable for the investor fund. The article presents a comparative analysis of existing methods of ranking by leading rating agencies. Proposed and tested a method of ranking allows to reduce insufficiencies existing methods of ranking and simplifies the choice of efficient mutual funds for private investors.
The notion that certain management practices at all levels create substantial competitive advantages for the company in the market received a lot of attention in the academic community over the years. A large body of work was accumulated as a result, though it appears that a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between management practices and firm performance is still lacking. This study is a part of a larger project aiming at closing this gap. The objective of this study was to create a typology of companies based on efficiency, using a number of objective criteria obtained from publicly available information.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
One of the most important indicators of company's success is the increase of its value. The article investigates traditional methods of company's value assessment and the evidence that the application of these methods is incorrect in the new stage of economy. So it is necessary to create a new method of valuation based on the new main sources of company's success that is its intellectual capital.
The Working Paper examines the peculiarities of the Russian model of corporate governance and control in the banking sector. The study relies upon theoretical as well as applied research of corporate governance in Russian commercial banks featuring different forms of ownership. We focus on real interests of all stakeholders, namely bank and stock market regulators, bank owners, investors, top managers and other insiders. The Anglo-American concept of corporate governance, based on agency theory and implying outside investors’ control over banks through stock market, is found to bear limited relevance. We suggest some ways of overcoming the gap between formal institutions of governance and the real life.
At present many industries reveal tendency for setting up of vertically integrated companies (VIC) the structure of which unites all technological processes. This tendency proved its efficiency in oil industry where coordination of all successive stages of technological process, namely, oil prospecting and production -oil transportation - oil processing - oil chemistry - oil products and oil chemicals marketing, is necessary. The article considers specific features of introduction of "personnel management" module at enterprises of oil and gas industry.
