Dr Tatiana Andreeva, Senior Lecturer in the School of Business, has co-authored a forthcoming book chapter entitled ‘Does intellectual capital matter for organizational performance in emerging markets? Evidence from Chinese and Russian contexts’.
The chapter, which Tatiana has co-written with Aino Kianto and Tatiana Garanina, will appear in The Routledge Companion to Intellectual Capital, edited by James Guthrie, John Dumay, Frederica Ricceri, and Christian Nielsen.
In recent decades, numerous empirical studies have demonstrated the importance of intellectual capital (IC) for efficiency and value creation. However, differences of cultural, economic or institutional context pose a range of challenges for the management of intellectual capital and knowledge. This chapter compares how intellectual capital impacts the performance of companies in China and Russia. These major emerging economies are of particular interest here because while both prioritize innovation and are increasingly integrated into the global economy, their traditional management approaches differ significantly from those in developed countries. Based on survey data collected from 139 Chinese and 86 Russian companies, the chapter examines the performance impact of the human, structural and relational components of IC. The results are relevant for IC research and practice, as they extend the understanding of IC and its consequences in emerging economies.
