The actuality of the research is caused by the lack of progressive management
mechanisms (including anticipatory management) at the domestic machine-building
enterprises, which are in the difficult crisis positions at present. It is founded that today
practically there are no scientific developments on the implementation and use of anticipatory
management at the machine-building enterprises.
The purpose of the research is to develop the methodical and applied regulations of
anticipatory management analysing at the machine-building enterprises. It is grounded that
these regulations must be aimed at understanding by managers the need to implement the
anticipatory management at their enterprises in today's challenging environment, to realize
this type of management as a full complete process in the management system, to avoid or
solve in the optimal way the problems of anticipatory management use, to form a high-quality
set of instruments for performing the specific assignment of anticipatory management, to
develop the efficient technology of anticipatory management realization and so on.
It is formed the sequence of anticipatory management analysing at the machine-building
enterprises, which includes setting the goals of anticipatory management analysing at the
machine-building enterprises, identification the directions of anticipatory management analysing at the machine-building enterprises, planning the collection of primary data on the
problem, collecting the primary data, processing the gathered information, its ordering and
presentation of results, formulation the conclusions and recommendations of implementation,
improvement and development of anticipatory management at the enterprises.
It is formulated the key objectives of specialized research of anticipatory management
on the basis of weak signals at the machine-building enterprises (detection the presence and
state of anticipatory management, identification and investigation of its elements, setting the
problematic issues and results from the implementation of anticipatory management at the
enterprises). It is also generalized the key directions of anticipatory management analysing at
the machine-building enterprises (the elements of anticipatory management (subjects and
objects of anticipatory management, functions of anticipatory management, operations and
tasks, which are related to the implementation of the specific assignment of anticipatory
management, methods that provide the implementation of specific assignment of anticipatory
management, management decisions, weak signals of functioning environment, information
provision of anticipatory management); the problems of anticipatory management realization
at the enterprises; the results from the implementation and use of anticipatory management at
the enterprises; evaluation of effectiveness of anticipatory management implementation at the
enterprises; identification the awareness of managers about the essence and role of
anticipatory management on the basis of weak signals at the enterprises; identification the presence and state of anticipatory management or its elements at the enterprises.
It is grounded the planning process of collecting the primary data on the problem, that
involves selection the methods of information collection (observation, survey, experiment,
simulation, panel); forming the sample from the general population of enterprises which will
be the objects of anticipatory management research; selection the way of communication with
the contact audience of investigated enterprises (telephone, Internet, mail, personal contact);
formation and preparation the research instruments (questionnaires, electronic and
mechanical devices, audio and video).
