The study illustrates the preliminary views of the studies by the authors. Both studies concentrate on the Barents Region and their objectives are linked to company competences – one studies the company competences enabling successful business operations and the second one concentrates on mining procurement competencies.
The objective of the first research is to find out the organisational competences linked to profitable operations in this specific region and the second research takes a more narrow aspect to competences and studies the procurement competencies in the mining sector.
