To change the economic processes and stabilize the socio-political situation, the authorities need an effective set of tools and methods of socio-economic management. They require new and better means of strategic planning that provide a controlled development of the national economy. This research features advanced forms and methods of econometric modeling in the regional socio-economic system. The research relied on the strategizing methodology developed by Professor V.L. Kvint, as well as the Strategist’s Office software that makes it possible to construct mathematical models of economic processes for a particular region. The predictive analytical model covered ten basic economic processes. This article introduces some factors and indicators defined for the transport infrastructure based on the index approach. The experimental part focused on the case of the North-Western and Volga Federal Districts. The set of tasks for regional development strategizing ranges from the theoretical and methodological provisions to the development of a digital twin of a regional economic system designed with the help of tools that provide information support for analysis, assessment, and forecasting. Regional strategizing is considered as a model of a regional socio-economic system defined as a structure that includes a number of autonomous subsystems with certain objective and measurable indicators.
This paper describes the economic and legal mechanisms of decarbonization in Russia, e.g., stimulating the transition to renewable energy, the state strategy on hydrogen, green transport, etc. In Russia, decarbonization will increase in relevance following the target scenario of climate regulation. Carbon taxes are being introduced to link manufactured products to carbon footprint. Car companies plan the number of internal combustion engines to be produced based on their carbon footprint allowances. When approaching a critical point, they have to produce electric cars or hybrid engines to increase possible sales. International financial organizations make decisions on loans based on the way a country meets its climate obligations.
The Russian Far East possesses an enormous natural and economic potential, however, its sectoral structure is represented mainly by extractive and manufacturing industries. Certain limiting factors impede the economic development of this microregion and the implementation of its strategic development priorities. Tourism and exhibition and trade fair activities are the largest inter-industry complexes with a significant multiplier effect on the local strategic goals. The research featured tourism and exhibition and trade fair activities as both interconnected and independent complexes that stimulate the economic growth, increase employment, and improve the quality of life in the Russian Far East. The authors assessed the regional potential for tourism, recreation, exhibitions, and trade fairs based on all resources available, their territorial combinations, the local economic turnover, and the needs of the local population and tourists. The analysis provides a comprehensive and systematic solution to such major issues as economic diversification, emigration, long-term economic growth, and the quality of life in the region. If the sphere of tourism, exhibitions, and trade fairs acquires substantial state support, the microregion will be able to implement a number of breakthrough projects in these industries. The Russian Far East will be able to meet the goals of its strategic development only if the federal and local authorities realize the socio-economic importance of tourism, industrial exhibitions, and trade fairs.
The article describes the concept of region as a holistic economic and social system, as well as an object of strategizing. The research relied on numerous theoretical and regulatory approaches used by different authors and institutes. The empirical part of the research concentrated on the Kemerovo Region aka Kuzbass. The methods included system, comparative, and logical analyses, as well as the dialecticmaterialistic method of cognition and a complex approach to conceptualization, generalization, and specification. The study also involved the descriptive-historical approach and individual theoretical-methodological provisions of regional strategizing. The article introduces the main approaches to the concept of region as a basic definition of regional economy and the theory and practice of regional strategizing. The term was interpreted using the case of the Kemerovo Region as an economic-social system and an object of strategizing. The current theory of strategy and the methodology and practice of strategizing demonstrate a severe ambiguity of scientific approaches and juridical interpretations to the term region. The traditional definition of the region is an object of strategizing for developing and implementing a formal strategy based on a current legislation. Thus, a region with its formal borders is a federal subject. This approach reflects its main characteristics as a complex economic-social system, where the economic aspect is primary and serves as a base for the social one.
The current sanctions, pandemic, and geopolitical situation demand new strategies and models of territorial sustainable development. The article considers the theoretical and methodological aspects of the innovative and industrial potential of the Russian Arctic as part of the ongoing import phase-out. The development potential of this macroterritory depends on the implementation of its human, infrastructural, financial, and industrial potentials. The author developed a five-stage algorithm of balanced indicators that assess the industrial and innovative potential of a region and applied it to the Arctic regions of the Russian Federation. The regions that revealed a below-average potential were tested for bottlenecks and acquired a sevenfold strategy for sustainable development. The research facilitates the assessment, decision-making, strategizing, strategy implementation, and road-mapping of the Arctic economy. Territorial management based on high-performance decision support systems is able to improve the economic activity of the Russian Arctic, boost its macroeconomic indicators, and increase the local social standards.
Strategic trends and patterns change the organizational, consumer, and instrumental landscape of the light industry and fashion companies. The current development of strategic branding is connected with the humanity (empathy) trend. In strategic branding, success depends on the right strategic decisions and customers’ feedback. Companies need to track consumer behavior, select relevant strategic communication tools, and create personalized propositions if they want to provide a sensitive response to customer preferences in real time. The present research objective was to identify effective strategic priorities in brand humanity in textile, footwear, clothing, and fashion. The task is relevant because brand humanity remains understudied in the spheres of light industry and fashion. The research relied on such traditional methods as analysis, synthesis, abstraction, generalization, and comparison, as well as on the theory and methodology of strategizing developed by V.L. Kvint, Doctor of Economics and a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The paper introduces a strategic concept for brand humanity development. This model can provide companies with a new image and improve their reputation. The article also contains some methodological recommendations that can find practical application in the corporate brand development.
The modern economy is constantly looking for optimal financial sources that provide sustainability and efficiency in the strategic perspective. Their effectiveness affects the financial performance and competitiveness of companies. An effective financing strategy gives the company a serious strategic advantage. Potential sources should be tested for feasibility. To implement strategic priorities in strategizing, companies should carry out a constant financial assessment of attracted financial resources and combine various mechanisms for financing their operations. The article offers a tool for assessing potential sources as part of the company’s strategic priorities and describes the impact of the correct choice of financial sources on the overall corporate strategy.
For children and adolescents, diet is a strategically important factor that affects their quality of life and well-being. However, the strategizing of school meals systems remains understudied, especially in the aspect of digitalization. This article introduces theoretical and methodological provisions for strategizing the systems of school catering in the context of digitalization. The research was based on the general theory of strategy and methodology of strategizing developed by V.L. Kvint. The authors determined the innovative approaches to the strategic development of public-school catering and the role of digitalization in the production process and menu planning. The strategic mission was designed based on the interests and values of the key stakeholders. The list of strategic priorities included four points. First, the menu should be diverse and comply both with the dietary needs of schoolchildren and the average family income. Second, marketing, production, and logistics need to rely on digital technologies. Third, new joint agricultural projects are to diversify the local menu. Fourth, strategic expansion includes a Competence Center and new markets. Each priority requires specific strategic goals and competitive advantages. The article also introduces I. Ansoff’s matrix that demonstrates new markets, products, and expansion prospects. The results can help school catering enterprises to strategize their development
The ecosystem of digital development of a financial enterprise is a strategically important scientific and methodological task. World practice shows that ecosystems are the strategic future of the economy that are able to transform traditional business. Seven of the ten largest global companies are ecosystem companies. In the medium term, ecosystems will account for a significant part of the national and global gross product. The global ecosystem trend is also developing in Russia. Under these conditions, large systemically important banks, e.g., the Sberbank, have to face new challenges. The article describes the role of the ecosystem strategy with its technological capabilities and risks in the paradigm of the digital economy in the case of the Sberbank. It introduces a new algorithm that can be applied to test the trends, opportunities, and limitations of the ecosystem and digital transformation of a financial organization. The analysis relied on the strategy theory and strategizing methodology developed by V.L. Kvint.
