R&D and marketing NPD cooperation: antecedents and consequences in Russian companies
Among all business processes, the process of NPD plays an exceptional role. In current competitive environment, the successful implementation of the process is believed to be of great importance for any company. Therefore, the importance of cross-functional collaboration between company departments (especially, between R&D and marketing departments) becomes obvious. However, the lack of systematic approach to operationalization of the concept and the lack of scientific attention in Russia remain the most acute challenges. Current research is conducted in order to systematize the existing views on the concept, and to design the construct, describing the concept and applicable during the further research on the topic.
Cross-functional cooperation is considered as one of the most crucial conditions to ensure effectiveness of new product development process. Particular interest arises in identifying conditions which lead to effective cooperation between marketing and R&D as they are deemed pivotal departments in developing innovations. This paper generalizes data from empirical researches and suggests synthesis model of factors affecting effectiveness of cooperation.

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.
