Elena Shakina participated in the EACES Workshop
At the EACES Workshop Elena Shakina has presented the study “Bridging the gap in competitiveness of Russian companies with intangible bricks” done jointly with Angel Barajas and Mariia Molodchik.
The findings of this study reveal a causal effect of the gap in intangible endowment and competitiveness of Russian companies compared with European rivals. According to the estimations, gaps in productivity, strategy implementation, qualifications of the board of directors and company location play critical roles in the global competitiveness of Russian companies. Meanwhile, underinvestment in structural resources, like those such as ERP systems and other intangible assets, are considered positive factors that reduce gaps in EVA. The research project is supported by Russian Science Foundation, grant № 15-18-20039.
