One of the basic challenges what lies prior to explorers working on the border of economic and agrarian sciences is a skillful incorporation the aspects of the globalization and Europeanisation into the main problems of their research. It seem reasonable to suppose that nowadays a continuous increase in products quality as well as a special care about the natural environment become the necessary conditions for economical successes of enterprises in a suitably long period. Thus, the monogpraph Management of agrarian production structures in the conditions of globalization processes is devoted to finding solutions of effective adaptations to the challenges of the environment in the conditions of globalization. The present publication was prepared in the form of monograph and its individual chapters were written by prominent specialists in the field representing all leading university research groups in Ukraine and Skudai-Johor in Malaysia. For the purpose of this monograph 11 chapters were divided into the following four areas:-Theoretic-methodological approaches to management in the agrarian sphere;-Modern conceptions of development of agricultural production;-The role of marketing in management by manufacturing structures of the agroindu-strial sector;-Main directions of implementation of innovation-investment activities of enterprises.

The main purpose of this article is to comprehensively explore the definition of value, its dissemination in enterprise management processes and the formation of a step-by-step view of providing value aspects for the company that will manifest to all internal and external stakeholders. The study found that in today’s changing environment, under the influence of Industry 4.0, an enterprise seeking to maintain competitive positions in the market and to have sustainable development needs to implement value aspects in the processes of managing its business activities. It is determined that a value-oriented approach to management involves identifying and reconciling key values of a company, recognized and perceived by its stakeholders (investors or creditors, employees, buyers (consumers), suppliers, government institutions, society). It is substantiated that the introduction of management in this direction should be understood as a qualitatively new state of strategic management of the corporation threefold purpose of which is: harmonization and maintenance of balance of individual values of employees, which are transformed into corporate values, which are perceived and adhered to by all members of the enterprise; consistent maximization of the value of the organization and creation of the value of the product that it offers on the market; effective management of the increased complexity and greater uncertainty and risks associated with organizing engagement with all stakeholders to succeed. Formed proposals of the authors can be implemented on a continuous basis, which will lead to constant updating and improvement of the operational activity of enterprises.The paper presents the stages of creating value aspects in the processes of enterprise management, which have four components. And itself: the birth, expansion, accumulation and implementation. Each stage forms the main components that underlie the next. Thus, compliance with all components creates the creation of a valuable product or service for the external stakeholders (such as the consumer, the environment, society). The factors of the main employees of the company involved in the processes of enterprise management (namely: directors of the enterprise and managers of various units) that provide value aspects of management are also highlighted.

Article
In this article I demonstrate that consumers not only consume, but the work-like tasks they perform while consuming constitute an increasingly important part of production. To theoretically explore the labor of consumers, I introduce the term consumptive labor and three ideal types of consumptive laborers: (1) consumer as quasi-employee, (2) consumer as quasi-supervisor, and (3) consumer as quasi-marketer/advertiser. Those espousing a management perspective argue that the use of consumers in the labor process improves customer service. Alternatively, using a labor process perspective, I demonstrate that organizations use consumptive labor to maximize the production of surplus value from paid employees and tighten control over the labor process. Although consumptive labor may yield benefits for consumers and especially business organizations, it also raises cause for concern. When organizations use consumers as quasi-employees, they may reduce the employment of service workers. By using consumers as quasi-supervisors, organizations may reduce supervisory employment and/or increase levels of stress in the work environment. When using consumers as quasi-marketers and advertisers, organizations perpetuate an excessively materialistic culture that values brands, products, and services over the well-being and needs of people.
