Kets de Vries M. F. R., Florent-Treacy E., Korotov K. a., Shekshnia S., Richter G. (2004). The New Russian Business Leaders London: Edward Elgar.
To illustrate the transition that has occurred in Russia since 1992, the authors studied Russian business leadership and entrepreneurship in a range of situations, from the transformation of a Soviet-era biscuit factory, to high-tech start-ups modeled on Western business practices.The book describes organization and leadership practices in Russia, and focuses on an emerging leadership style the authors term "global Russian." The purpose of this research is both hindsight and foresight: by analyzing the rapid changes of the recent past, the authors seek to provide lessons on leadership that will be valuable for Russian business leaders and for those who seek to engage in working partnerships with them.
