Актуальность сценарного менеджмента для международного олимпийского движения
The article deals with the background and the main problems related to the crisis management of the international Olympic movement, analyzes the economic results of the organization of the Olympic Games, provides scenarios for structural changes in the world of sports management system. As a methodological tool used in this study TAIDA method proposed by Mats Lindgren and Hans Bandhold in their program work, "Scenario Planning - Revised and Updated: The link between future and strategy." The relevance of this study is confirmed by the growth of the scandalous news reports related to systemic problems in world sport.
This book discusses smart, agile software development methods and their applications for enterprise crisis management, presenting a systematic approach that promotes agility and crisis management in software engineering. The key finding is that these crises are caused by both technology-based and human-related factors. Being mission-critical, human-related issues are often neglected. To manage the crises, the book suggests an efficient agile methodology including a set of models, methods, patterns, practices and tools. Together, these make a survival toolkit for large-scale software development in crises. Further, the book analyses lifecycles and methodologies focusing on their impact on the project timeline and budget, and incorporates a set of industry-based patterns, practices and case studies, combining academic concepts and practices of software engineering.
This book focuses on crisis management in software development which includes forecasting, responding and adaptive engineering models, methods, patterns and practices. It helps the stakeholders in understanding and identifying the key technology, business and human factors that may result in a software production crisis. These factors are particularly important for the enterprise-scale applications, typically considered very complex in managerial and technological aspects and therefore, specifically addressed by the discipline of software engineering. Therefore, this book throws light on the crisis responsive, resilient methodologies and practices; therewith, it also focuses on their evolutionary changes and the resulting benefits.
The article deals with the social research methods of the crises of the physical environment provoked by natural, biological and technological factors. These crises are united by the rising hybridity of social and physical phenomena.
Sustainable development is understood as the industrial capacity of their strategic potential. Crises are inevitable, but they should not destroy strategic industrial potential. Sustainable development implies a re-industrialization, and is seen as the basis for the country's economic security. Mechanisms for ensuring economic security are an integral part of crisis management.
It is determined that domination of subjective reasons in emergence of economic conflicts makes application of the theory of cycles not applicable to full-scale study of economic conflicts – application of this concept is expedient only as to economic crises that are one of a lot of manifestations of economic conflicts. It is probably that neglecting subjective (social) factors leads to the above contradictions of the theory of cycles and difference between its theoretical models and empirical data. Based on this conclusion, it is substantiated that methodology of studying socio-economic system through the prism of the theory of cycles is not applicable to economic conflicts; it is determined that development of the concept of economic conflicts can specify and improve the methodology of the theory of cycles.
The article discusses the history and theory of economic olympic business cycles, their unity and difference. It shows how they differ from the classic business cycle. The authors analyze the role of IOC in olympic business cycle.
The authors analyze the nature and root causes of the software development crisis which started in the 1960s and, as some researchers argue, is still present. The crisis resulted from a number of factors, which included technological ones and human-related ones. The first group of factors originates from technical complexity, while the second one results from management complexity of the software products. Software production involves multiple sides with clearly different expectations and goals. In a crisis, efficient managing of these human-related factors becomes mission-critical. Communicational misconceptions between the sides often result in a software product which may not meet the clients’ expectations. To manage this software delivery crisis, the authors recommend an optimization strategy for the technical and human factors by means of software engineering models, methods, techniques, practices and tools. This strategy includes risk management models, agile methodologies, system-level architectural patterns, an informing process framework, and a set of knowledge transfer principles. This strategy, if applied systemically, should essentially help to optimize the software development process and to manage the crises of software production.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
The paper examines the principles for the supervision of financial conglomerates proposed by BCBS in the consultative document published in December 2011. Moreover, the article proposes a number of suggestions worked out by the authors within the HSE research team.

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.
