«ILLUSION OF MANAGEMENT» IN THE STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF URBAN DEVELOPMENT

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №4 (64) December, 2018

The main trends of recent years in the field of urban management and their reflection in municipal strategies are considered. In total, three global trends are considered: the restructuring of the settlement system, the restructuring of the urban planning system, the aging of the population in cities. Analysis covers the municipal strategies of three million-population cities: Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Novosibirsk. It is shown that none of the global trends is fully taken into account in any of these strategies. As a result, instead of effective management there is an «illusion of management» of urban development. According to the authors, there are two main reasons for this state of affairs: excessive bureaucratization of the process of strategy development and adoption, and the psychological effect of fear of the future ors futurophobia.
