The Russian Enterprise in Transition provides a unique insight into the realities of the restructuring of Russian industrial enterprises in the transition period from the boardroom to the shop floor.

An introductory chapter by Simon Clarke, which gives an overview of the industrial enterprise in transition, is followed by four in-depth case study reports of enterprises, covering the period since the beginning of the radical reform. Each report looks at the changing strategy of management at various levels in response to the challenge of transition, at the response of the shop floor and to the more subtle changes in values and social relations within the enterprise over the period of reform. Together the reports cover five enterprises which provide a cross-section of different types of former state enterprises. Two of the enterprises covered were among the pioneers of privatization, two were flagships of the military–industrial sector which had to respond to the collapse of the traditional markets, and the fifth was a passenger transport enterprise which remains in state control.

The Russian Enterprise in Transition is the fourth volume in the series Management and Industry in Russia, reporting directly on the results of a unique programme of case study and ethnographic research into the restructuring of social relations in Russian industrial production. Together these case study reports provide a unique insight into industrial life in Russia and are an essential component to the previous volumes in the series, which have focused on substantive thematic analysis.
Critical Acclaim
‘The present reviewer strongly believes that all the four volumes in this series should constitute the must reading list of the planners and policymakers in the countries concerned about transition of public enterprises.’
