In the past decades, there has been a transformation of management approaches from management by instructions to management by values, where special attention is paid to employees’ engagement in the company management. This is the most promising approach of employee management, which, however, requires a new vision and the implementation of modern management practices. The article presents the results of large-scale empirical study of monitoring values and management practices in Russian and global companies operating in Russia. The survey involved 1,530 companies from 10 main industries, including 80% of Russian, 6% of foreign and 14% of global companies, using quantitative methods of collection and statistical methods of data processing. The analysis of modern management practices has been carried out across five main areas: 1. communication; 2. Empowerment and leadership; 3. problem solving and decision making; 4. conflict management; and 5. motivation. It made it possible to characterize modern approaches of management in Russia and to reveal the potential of new management practices effectively used by global companies to enhance the competitiveness and business efficiency of Russian companies.
The purpose of this paper is to identify specific features of innovative business models (of circular economy and shareconomy type) and to analyze the factors that cause this specificity in Russian context. The paper investigates recent theoretical concepts considering modern sustainability practices of companies, new business models based on them and advanced research on sustainable business model innovation in the field of supply chain management. Through a number of case studies provided in this paper we show how business models based on circular economy and shareconomy concepts are applied by the Russian companies. We analyze how various aspects of Russian context create challenges for companies when introducing and implementing sustainable practices and innovative business models based on sustainable principles discussed above.
