Scenarios of implementing the mechanism of collaborative alliances on the territories of natural resource extraction with risk factors

Halynska Yu.

PhD in Economics, Associate Professor

We offered the scientific-methodical approach on coordination of interests of different groups in forming the collaborative alliances of different levels of hierarchy in this article. Based on the scenario approach, using the variability criteria that determine some changes in implementing the mechanism of collaborative alliances in the territories of natural resource extraction, we determined the most probable scenarios of socio-economic and spatial development, taking into account the risk factors.

Key words: collaborative alliance, scenarios of participants' interaction, natural resources, risks in the functioning of collaborative alliances.

В статті запропоновано науково-методичний підхід щодо узгодження інтересів різних груп при формуванні колабораційних альянсів різних рівнів ієрархії. На основі сценарного підходу за допомогою критеріїв варіативності, які визначають зміни у впровадженні механізму колабораційних альянсів на територіях видобування природних ресурсів були визначено найбільш ймовірні сценарії соціально-економічного і просторового розвитку з урахуванням факторів ризику.

Ключові слова: колабораційних альянс, сценарії взаємодії учасників, природні ресурси, ризики при функціонуванні колабораційних альянсів.

Formulation of the problem. Permanent changes in rental policy in Ukraine not only do not contribute to the stability of economic situation in the country, but, on the contrary, destabilize and motivate fuel-producing companies, which are the main payers of rental income. The state, in its turn, does not receive rental income from the extraction of natural resources, despite the gradual growth of the rent payment percentage. The social and environmental tensions are increasing in the regions where the natural resources are extracted. All this factors lead to the formation of a nontransparent and inefficient natural resource market, the ruin of Ukrainian regions and the increase of environmental hazard.

In other works, we have already proved the need to create such an instrument that would promote the interest of all participants in the redistribution of rental income from the natural resources extraction and would be an effective organizational form for the formation of social responsibility (Halynska Y., 2017). Such an organizational form can be represented by a collaborative alliance, in which all participants (state - fuel-producing company - local communities) will have a certain socio-economic interest in the balanced allocation of rental income and will function through the mechanism of systemic interaction.

The practice of management of foreign countries shows that the basis of ensuring the stability and effectiveness of socio-economic relations is the mutual interest of all participants in the creation, distribution and redistribution of rental income and social security of the population in the regions of their extraction.

But the problem is that we have identified some risks in the process of this mechanism development, which could be faced by the alliance members (state - local communities - fuel- producing companies) during operation of the collaborative alliances. Therefore, we developed the scientific-methodical approach on coordination of interests of different groups in forming the collaborative alliances of different levels of hierarchy using the scenario method. Taking into account that the organizational mechanism of rental income redistribution can provoke various consequences and the development of unforeseen events, both in the regions and in the country as a whole, it is necessary to consider the variability of events, taking into account different criteria.

Analysis of publications. Many works are devoted to the topic of using a scenario approach in forecasting political and social processes. They mainly include the American, British, German, Russian scientists: L.I. Abalkin, A.S. Akhremenko, S. Braun, R. Bud, A.Viner, L. Gann, Yu. Hausemeier, Kh. Geshka, N. Glass, V. Dannikov, G. Zhukova, A. Zibe, S.V. Ildemenov, G. Kan, G.N. Kalyanov, E. Kveid, B.I. Krasnov, S. Kurganyan, A.T. Kutanov, D. Marka, Kmak-Gouen, E.G. Oikhman, E.V. Popov, T. Postma, Yu.V. Sidelnikov, E.D. Solozhentsev, B. Teilor, V.N. Trenev, K.A. Feofanov, A. Fink, R. Hammer, B. Hogwood, V.N. Tsigichko, A.Z. Sheier, O. Shlake, S. Yuditsky.

This method seems to be most effective for considering probable events in the future, because in addition to analyzing the factors affecting the company and the business as a whole, the possible development scenarios in the future and the possible interaction of strategic goals, flexible and "durable in terms of the future", strategy acquire special significance. The accepted development options include the plurality of possible pictures of the future, increasing the value, sensitivity and peculiarities of strategic decisions, goals and strategies implemented in the scenarios (Akimova, 2006).

This method allows answering the following questions:

What are the trends of a particular aspect of the development of the considered business system, the conditions and factors that determine them?

What problems can be faced by the investigated business system, where are located the bifurcation points, in which there can be a sharp change in the system parameters or structure?

How and to what extent the management decisions influence the trajectory of the future development of the predicted business system, what are the consequences of various options of the considered decision, what is the area of admissible alternatives to this solution?

The purpose of this article is to consider the interaction scenarios of alliance participants at the vertical level (state - territorial community - enterprise) and at the horizontal level (enterprise - enterprise) in the process of creating added value and its component - the natural resource rent.

Research results. Most scientists point out that the content of coercive mechanisms existing today has been the source of many problems of the transition economy, which are related to the development of informal links between the economic subjects [2,3,4,8]. Today, the market economy institutions are practically formed, but they largely fail to meet the reformation processes, which so far only unfold and do not sufficiently influence the course of further transformation of the country's economy. They cannot respond quickly enough to new relationships with economic agents and to introduce new coordination mechanisms.

Under the prevailing conditions, the extractive enterprises are not profitable to show higher income, since a rent payment is deducted in percentage correlation. As a result, there is a need to create a rental income redistribution mechanism, which would be interesting to all participants in this creation in Ukraine, and in some countries of Eastern Europe (Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, etc.).

The evaluation of the factors inherent in different forms of cooperation has shown that the greatest number of factors have the highest value for the effective interaction of business entities at the collaboration. This suggests that firstly, collaboration is the most transparent form of interaction between the subjects in comparison with other forms of cooperation, and secondly, similar forms of interaction such as cooperation have differences in the formulation of goals, communication form, presence of competition, etc. Thus, the collaborative alliances are the organizational form that will facilitate the optimal redistribution of rental income between the state - region and the extractive enterprises.

An analysis of the studies of leading economies of the world has showed that one of the real mechanisms for replenishing the budgets of the regions and the state is the optimal rent allocation from the natural resource extraction and the attribution of part of rental income to local budgets in order to restore the territories after natural resource extraction and life development of the territorial communities [9].

The own research made it possible to develop the scientific-methodical approach on coordination of interests of different groups in forming the cooperative alliances of different levels of hierarchy (horizontal and vertical). The use of the scenario approach reveals an effect that, by means of variability criteria, determines changes in implementing the mechanism of collaborative alliances in the territories of natural resource extraction and taking into account the risk factors.

The introduction of new forms of work organization at the state level or at the enterprise level will always face the risks and counteractions of individual work participants. Therefore, it is necessary to "play" the options of events and risk occurrence at different levels (state, fuel- producing companies and regions where the natural resource extraction takes place).

In order the author could systematize the variational events of functioning of the collaborative alliances in the field of natural resource extraction; we sorted the options of event occurrence by S indicator, with the combination of expert, system and empirical methods. The event scenarios are considered in accordance with three expert groups. The expert groups worked in 2015 and 2016. Three options of the event development were adopted as the base (optimistic, pessimistic, and most probable). Based on the interdependence formalization between the collaborative risks of different groups, we suggested choosing the risk management tools depending on their manifestations, as well as on other factors, the specific combination of which should be established on the basis of S indicator. The main S variation criteria are: il - level of collaborative alliances;

ir - risk type;

im - competition type of the fuel-producing companies;

ic - type of socio-ecological and economic crisis (situation in the country) (Table 1).

There is a number of problems regarding the coordination of interests of the parties with observance of the established communication rules in the course of implementing the cooperation. There is formal or real cooperation in the course of cooperation, since the legal agreement and contractual drawing up is not enough for the emergence of the collaboration process and its desired end result.

The event development scenarios have shown that when creating the collaborative alliances in all event options (optimistic, pessimistic, and most probable), the additional costs will be increased for the introduction of new technologies at the enterprises to maintain their competitiveness, and the cost price of production of the enterprises and the rent for natural resource extraction can be increased. One of the main problems revealed is the inconsistency of interests of the collaborative alliance participants in the environmental management. That is, there are no guarantees that the opportunist mood will not be present in the alliance. However, in addition to an optimal redistribution of rental income from the natural resource extraction, a collaborative alliance is created for the formation of social responsibility in the resource redistribution. If all the alliance participants will adhere to the agreements within the framework of the alliance, then there will be a collaborative effect based on the synergy phenomenon. The

Collaborative effect will be manifested in the increase of value added, which in turn will affect the growth of natural resource production, improvement of working conditions, increase in tax revenues to the budget and improvement of the regional infrastructure.


The studies have shown that no enterprise can hope for the preservation of competitive advantages only by means of their own forces in a modern economy. The partnerships and alliances make it possible to combine internal resources of the company with the resources coming from the outside. The creation of collaborative alliances can outline the interests of specific regions, as well as formalize the relationships between the enterprises. There is a collaborative effect that results from the interaction of their participants in the process of functioning of the collaborative alliances. Since the collaborative effect arises on the basis of synergy phenomenon, then the effect can be both positive and negative. The considered scenarios of event variability allowed us identifying both positive and negative trends in the creation and operation of collaborative alliances in the environmental management.

The identified event scenarios can help to develop the anti-risk mechanisms and implementation strategies for creating and operating a collaborative alliance in the environmental management. The introduction of three options for the event development (optimistic, pessimistic, and most probable) makes it possible to select those options that will be most appropriate in the specific areas of natural resource extraction.

This approach has been developed in general for all regions of Ukraine's mining industry, but it can be applied in a particular region, if there are specific factors that are not mentioned in our approach.
