This book presents six in-depth case studies focusing on companies of vastly differing sizes, ranging from a newly privatised operation and the creation and organisation of an oligarch's empire, to several entrepreneurial start-ups in different service industries. The case studies document the changes and developments that have occurred in Russia since the privatization era of the 1990s, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of the emerging business leadership orientations. Grounded in Russian culture and history, it takes a balanced view of the rapid development and transformation of the country's business leadership over the past ten years.
