A 2005 volume, Corporate Governance in Russia, edited by Daniel J. McCarthy and Sheila M. Puffer, from the US and Stanislav V. Shekshnia from Russia presents case studies and illustrations of other governance improvements. This work exemplifies continued East-West collaboration in producing management scholarship and brings practitioners' voices into the literature. Its contributors include, among others, Russian academics Abel G. Aganbegyan and Vladimir Schein, of the Academy of National Economy in Moscow; Russian governance specialists Igor V. Belikov, founder of the Russian Institute of Directors, plus Stanislav V. Shekshnia and Andrey Mikhaylenko, co-founders of Zest Leadership, a consulting firm; professors with a Russian background such as Igor Filatotchev of King's College, London, Anatoly V. Zhuplev of Loyola Marymount, Los Angeles, and Alina Pekarsky of York University, Toronto, Canada; and professors Mike Wright, Nottingham University Business School and Trevor Buck, then of Loughborough University in the UK.
So, too, the topics of scholarly interest in CEE continued to expand and enrich. Consider, for example, Leaders and Teams: The Winning Partnership with multinational contributions from Danica Purg, Pierre Casse, Lynn A. Isabella, Paul Georges Claudel, and Arnold Walravens (2003); Change Management in Transition Economies: Integrating Corporate Strategy, Structure and Culture, edited by Heinz-Jürgen Stüting, Wolfgang Dorow, Frank Claassen, and Susanne Blazejewski (2003); The Challenges of Sustained Development: The Role of Socio-Cultural Factors in East-Central Europe by Frane Adam, Matej Makarovič, Borut Rončević, and Matevž Tomšič (2005); and The Knowledge-Based Economy in Central and East European Countries: Countries and Industries in a Process of Change, edited by Krzysztof Piech and Slavo Radosevic (2006).
