DOI: 10.33917/mic-6.107.2022.32-42

The article analyzes network interactions as a factor in the formation of business value in the digital economy. In the course of the study, the author analyzes the advantages and features of network interactions within platform business models and business ecosystems. The author comes to the following conclusions. Network interactions between platform participants produce network effects. Taking advantage of network effects is changing the way business value is created. Data is becoming the main asset that ensures the growth of the capitalization of digital companies. Links of the value chain are transformed into modules and embedded in networks. Under the influence of digital technologies, business value is created at all levels of the economic system (including the nanolevel), companies are turning from static hierarchical structures into dynamic networks of interconnected players, and the role of company management in creating business value is changing.

DOI: 10.33917/es-8.166.2019.140-145

The article discusses methodological support of the crisis recovery process through implementing technological transformations, characterized by frugality during the process realization. In particular, the paper consequentially sustantiates the need to focus on production and technological issues and employees motivation, determines limitations of the Kurt Levin transformation methodology for socio-economic systems and identifies conceptual provisions of crisis management based on innovations of S.V. Valdaytsev. These provisions form the basis of the four stages of the “price-conscious transformation” methodology: stabilization, localization, reorganization and adaptation. The paper provides a comparative analysis of the proposed methodology with Michael Porter’s classical value chain model and describes approaches to implementing organizational project of transformations based on technological innovations as “crisis management practices” that take into account not only the interests of creditors and owners, but also the need to strengthen economic security of the Russian state
