Guidelines and useful hints
6
Guidelines
Approach and methodology: create hypothesis based on economical, statistical data, press releases,
companies web sites and annual reviews, blogs and other secondary sources on information. Some new
trends and hypothesis besides mentioned in the short-list are always welcome but need to be discussed
and proved. Macro to micro trends analysis.
Structure: hypothesis, some proving facts and data, analysis based on common sense, reliable scientific
and economical articles and investigations expert opinions (may include the interviews made by the
students themselves), visualization of ideas.
Frost & Sullivan role: short-list of Mega Trends preparation, assistance with some data and primary
information. Moderation of discussions within working groups, assistance with data collection and analysis
techniques. Assistance with data visualization.
Requirements to collection and formulation arguments for new/ existing Mega Trend
Every trend realization (in general) should be supported with:
• Existing or planned project or technology R&D better with announced financial plans or intentions,
proving the whole trend (time of realization, approx. amount of investments)
• Announced government support, special legislation framework, government programs and initiatives,
co-investment initiatives.
• Some data (e.g. backward statistics or current and future situation analysis, experts point of view, etc)
proving social, economic, technology, whatever, local or global trends.
• Good examples or success stories proving the hypothesis (in Russia or in other countries as well).
And vice versa: if you think that of the trends for some reason won’t work for Russia you should be ready
to prove it with some valuable facts.

Social Trends: Prosperity, Education and Social Mobility
To analyse:

Middle class size (now and in 2020), its main characteristics (incl. distribution per country),
related economic trends (demands, development, interdependency with economic processes,
etc.)

Social mobility trends: economic, geographic and infrastructure aspects (benefits, threats).
Why do we need it? How it could be intensified?

Higher demand for intangible products – entertainment, services, investment (new services,
new markets and market opportunities)

Current and Future Education systems for Generation Y (announced plans and reforms),
necessities, main trends – globalization, education in Russia and abroad (statistics,
predictions), social effects, opportunities, benefits.
To think about:

Social thinking: social networks (current statistics, trends), social innovations,
personalization(new trends and applications)

Solid technical knowledge vs. lack of managerial skills in Russia (traditional forms of
education). Complex approach and reformation, new shape of high education: Federal
Universities, National research centres.

Urbanisation : Mega Cities, Mega Regions and Mega Corridors
To analyse:


Moscow “Big City” project:

Announced plans and investments (opportunities, problems, concerns)

Development strategy (infrastructure, transport system, social aspects)

Investments and project realization period

Regional impact. Is it possible? Why do we need it?
Vladivostok – mega hub in the Far East:

Complex development of Vladivostok before and after APEC 2012 summit

Opportunities and problems for Vladivostok as a hub and connection point between Russia
and Asia. Possible locations-competitors.

Level of investments needed and announced (perspectives)

Regional impact. Why is it so important?
To think about:


Moscow - St. Petersburg Mega Corridor? (Mumbai-Delhi case-study)

Prerequisites for corridor creation (trends and examples), costs and future opportunities

Project execution (plans, timing, possibility and necessity)
Russian urbanization trends in general. Another examples of Mega Regions/ corridors in Russia.

Modern Russia
To analyse:

Current and announced modernization programmes and initiatives (plans, investment level,
goals, realization period) – state and private trends,

Some industry examples: oil and gas (oil refining), and/or utilities (water/gas/electricity supply,
wastewater),

Expectations and impact on various industries (some related statistics could be useful)

New technologies application in industry and economy (how they could influence on current
situation or shape new trends),

E-government implementation in Russia (current situation, statistics, perspectives, comparison
with another countries - United Nations “E-government reports”, situation in different countries:
leaders and best practices to understand main trends.
To think about:

“Strategy 2020” state programme,

Business initiatives and expectations,

Various sectors opportunities: space, energy, ITC, etc.,

Russia: current state vs future opportunities : cost of paper services and e-government
approach (plans, budget spending). What do we actually gain and what we lose?
10
Back to Russia
To analyze:

Localization of manufacturing in Russia – hi-tech alternative to mass production in Asia region
(trends, reasons, opportunities, threats),

Different practical aspects: manufacturing capabilities, human capital, geographic position,
infrastructure),

Leading international companies and their plans in Russia: manufacturing localization, R&D,
etc.

Reverse brain drain process:

Is it truly exist?

Do people return or it’s just “brain circulation” (reasons, statistics, positive and negative
sides)?

Current trends and government plans and expectations
To think about:

Current position and Russian perspectives in global economy. Is “Back to Russia” possible
and why? Global experience of the same processes.

Reverse brain drain: globalization of modern science (volume of brain drain, cost for
economy, conditions for return – to analyse if it’s possible or not). Global trends.
