Estimating Relation Between Innovative Development of Large Companies and Their Efficiency

The article analyzes the development of large companies in Siberian re­gions as elements of regional innovation systems, on the one hand, and as elements of sectoral innovation systems, on the other. It evaluates the inter­relation between the companies' innovation activity and their operational efficiency. We test a hypothesis that innovative companies are more efficient than non-innovative ones. Characteristics related to the innovative develop­ment of large companies are partially responsible for their performance: only intra-innovation environment plays an important role, while neither regional nor sectoral innovation environments determine the efficiency of large compa­nies. Such companies may consider innovation activity as a means to improve performance, although they are poorly integrated into regional and sectoral innovation systems.
