Governors: reboot and upgrade. Analysis of the article

Oleg Belozerov

candidate of technical sciences, member of expert-analytical council on socio-political and socio-economic development of the Khabarovsk Territory under the Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory
«This week on the pages of the information and analytical agency East Russia an article was published by Vyacheslav Kushnarev, Director of the Far Eastern Institute of Management, RANEPA "Governors: reboot and upgrade"... The article clearly emphasizes that “mechanical reshuffle, replacement of some powerful persons with others for solving such a problem will obviously not be enough. Currently, Moscow is trying to develop, set and test "in action" a new standard of a regional leader capable of working effectively even in the most difficult circumstances.

I would like to note that the modern Russian administrative system is a gigantic "virtual meat grinder", in which more than a dozen intelligent and talented people have already disappeared. It is clearly advisable to conduct a serious analysis of the criteria for assessing the activities of governors. To date, this is a series of indicators, the rigorous observance of which often pushes leaders of the top echelon to "juggling with numbers," and sometimes even a blatant lie. It is, for example, the results of the implementation of federal targeted programs and the "May decrees" of the president.

With the "May decrees" of the president, so in general the trouble. According to the Government of the Khabarovsk Territory, in the first half of 2017, the average salary of doctors was 60823 rubles, teachers - 50872 rubles. It is better not to tell these numbers to anyone at all, people know their salaries. Isn't that why distrust of the current government is growing ?! In my opinion, for the next few years the only criterion would be to establish "the degree of satisfaction of the population with life in the region." Then there will be no need to dissemble: there will be an objective picture, objective ways of getting out of difficult situations will be developed.

It is also difficult to agree with the statement that the future governors are "... These are leaders who have" state "and not narrow regional thinking, they feel the realities of the day and are in the wake of the country's strategic development, the program of which is proposed by the federal center." In my opinion, the task of the governor is to solve precisely the problems of the region. "Fight for your region." After all, very often the problems of the region are in conflict, and even in conflicts, with the goals of the federal center, which is supposedly better seen. In this case, the governor should have the opportunity to be more independent in defending the interests of his region, his inhabitants, and not bending his own population under questionable projects. Perhaps, the example seems not entirely correct, but I remembered in this connection the situation with chum salmon fishing this year. We blocked the Cupid. Someone made money. Who defended their population? The Governor?

We can agree with the above assessment of the governor as a technocrat-manager, with a good level of education, focused on innovations in all spheres of his activity, but conservative enough not to get carried away with ideas divorced from life. Today, the unrestrained passion for innovation by a number of top echelon leaders is already creating a gap between theory and practice, which does not bode well for us in the near future. After all, the obvious idea is that innovation cannot be the goal. This is a means to achieve the goal. Possible remedy.

Our governors often act like celestials. Therefore, of course, the proposal of the author of the article to give power in the regions to the most worthy arouses approval; the question is how much the proportion between professional qualities and personal loyalty will be maintained. This point in the article is also very well marked. How easy will it be to bring it to life? Today, in my opinion, the ratio of professionalism to personal loyalty is about 1 to 10. Are there any chances to change something for the better? In my opinion, they are very small. The system has become accustomed to working this way over the years. Localism has become an integral part of life. It is necessary to raise the question of changing the rules of the system's work, to discuss the quality of the work of the existing executive authorities at public expert councils. I can assume that this will not be done. And let's not forget that community councils often do not work very well. Feedback between the authorities and society still needs to be dealt with and dealt with.

There is an hint in the article about an 3-year-old carte blanche, which Vladimir Putin at a recent Eastern Economic Forum publicly identified a number of Far Eastern governors. "It is assumed that it is during this period that the Far Eastern Territories will be able to rise to the top of the national rating of investment attractiveness." I can assume that the issue with the Khabarovsk Territory is still open, due to a number of recent scandals and a significant overregulation of the administrative apparatus of the Khabarovsk Territory, even compared to neighboring subjects. That's who to check and check!

However, the idea of ​​training local Far Eastern personnel is certainly a positive signal. You need to move your own. The only question is what to do if these are already today an integral part of the system, which already raises a number of questions.

I would not want the system to engage in self-cloning. As a result, we can get such a picture, when the control system moves from one negative state (after the “reset” mentioned in the title of this article) to the same state. After all, what is a reboot, a reboot is a process in which the system resets all its parameters in order to return to its original state. An upgrade is the process of replacing hardware or software applications on personal computers with a newer or more functional one.

In light of the above, I propose to do without rebooting. The so-called "initial state" does not suit the majority of the population. Largely for this reason, the process of changing the governor's corps began. Many people are waiting for change. Positive changes. And a good, high-quality upgrade of the executive authorities will obviously not hurt us. If the Far Eastern Institute of Management of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration is already at the origins of this process, it remains only to wish its head Vyacheslav Kushnarev and the university staff to successfully cope with the task!
