Глава 9. Инновационное поведение традиционных промышленных фирм

С. 195-221.

The chapter privdes insight into the specificity of innovations at the mature manufacturing firms in Russia. The findings show that the group of genuine innovators, which target at least the national market and undertake R&D is rather small and unstable. About 10% of large enterprises completed the technological upgrade and get ready for the innovative mode of economic growth. We did not observe the technological convergence. Instead the group of leaders close to technological frontire becomes stronger, while the outsiders fell further behind. Firms which innovate regularly take decisions on product and process innovations simultaniously, and we did not find any evidence that these decisions compete. Innovations are more likely to increase competitiveness when they are integrated into the investment process.
