ENTREPRENEURIAL UNIVERSITY CULTURE: THE CLASH OF VALUES AND RESISTANCE TO CHANGE

Series: Education. WP BRP . НИУ ВШЭ, 2016. No. 31/EDU/2015 .
This paper introduces an original methodology for assessing organizational culture of an entrepreneurial university. Methods for the assessment of values in research activity and of resistance to organizational change have been developed. The study of values and characteristics of resistance to change was conducted on the academic staff of the faculties of Economics and Management at the Nizhny Novgorod campus of the Higher School of Economics. It was found that the campus professors' academic orientation in research activity dominates over entrepreneurial orientation and differs depending on values. Additionally, greatest resistance in professors is caused by changes in human resources policy and management; this resistance is of moderate intensity and passive. The study confirmed a positive relationship between the academic orientation of the "motivation" and "reward" values and the intensity of resistance to change in personnel policy and management.
