In the past decade, a lot of researchers have focused on either management or measurement of intellectual capital components on macro (government), meso (local communities and industries) and micro (single organization itself) level. While it’s been a current issue for commercial organizations, higher education institutions, and private schools, a number of research projects about the implementation of intellectual capital concept (both parts) is scarce. Russian secondary education system is facing a necessity to become more transparent and client‐oriented, the existing reporting and management systems are not capable of dealing with this range of problems. Our research goal is to investigate the current status quo of intellectual capital in secondary schools (Do we have an established language for Intellectual Capital in educational institutions in St Petersburg Russia?). The level of perception and representation of IC metrics is analyzed by semantic analysis (what are the main IC components that value in a strategic planning of schools) and preliminary insights of the research are reported.
The main objective of this paper is to understand and describe how knowledge management practices are organized in Russian firms of different industries and the extent to which these practices have been adopted to support the business strategy. Based on hierarchical cluster analysis of 104 Russian companies, this study highlights the specific combinations of KM practices and accents made by Russian managers in this area.
