Our paper "Bridging the gap in competitiveness of Russian companies with intangible bricks" is already available in Measuring Business Excellence.
In this paper, we analyse the difference of competitiveness between European and Russian companies considering the role of intangibles. We have found a significant difference in the means of competitiveness between European and Russian enterprises. Moreover, we have found a robust negative trend in the global competitiveness of Russian companies, despite a number of positive conjunctural shifts in favour of Russian local production – appreciation of the rouble, together with measures of protective governmental policy. We can assert that there is a gap in the competitiveness between Russian and European companies, and that this gap is more significant in the manufacturing, construction, services and financial sectors.
We hope that this study can help to understand better Russian firms and how they should reduce the gap in the endowment of intangibles.
We would appreciate all kind of comments.
