Session 46

Strategy Practices in Russian Firms

Track S

Date: Friday, March 19, 2010


Time: 13:15 – 14:45

Parallel Panel

Room: Kabinetti

Session Chair:


There is an increasing amount of research on the strategy processes and practices of companies. Yet, most of this research tends to focus on large western corporations and their strategy practices. Recent years have seen the emergence of the Emerging Multinationals that have become a prominent force in the world economy. At present, however, we know still relatively little about the strategy processes and practices of these firms. In the Global Fortune 500 list of 2009 there are now already eight giants from Russia and there are likely to be many more in the coming years. In this panel, we provide a unique view to the strategy practices of Russian firms by top scholars with several years of experience of research and cooperation with Russian firms. In addition to discussing the Russian multinationals phenomenon in general, the panelists will address themes covering the distinctive characteristics of the Russian cultural context, corporate social responsibility, and the development stages of entrepreneurial Russian firms.
