1. Introduction

The contemporary situation in Russian economy is characterized by the lack of stability in the economic, legal and social relations. The distortion of the institutional environment has violated the forces placement, and, therefore, shifted the development trajectory, distorted functioning and provided the stakeholders' conflict. The existing distorted production structure and reproduction model of the Russian economy, as well as weak industrial competitiveness impose significant obstacles for the country sustained economic growth with high economic dynamics (David & Olorunfemi, 2010; Lapigin et al., 2005).

The objectives of the large industrial associations are the stabilization and business solvency growth while determining the mechanisms of the strategy development and the arrangements of the entities' effective interaction (Fathutdinov, 2008; Ansoff, 2009; Gurbuz & Aybars, 2010).

In this regard it seems appropriate to apply to the quality management tools which efficiency has already been confirmed by domestic and foreign practices (Testa et al., 2014; Deming, 2011; Glischev, 2009; Gorbashko, 2008; Gugelev, 2007). That particularly concerns acquiring the long-term competitive advantages by the economic entities.

2. Materials and Methods

The broad idea of the experiment was to develop a tool to identify corporate structures ( as there is no legal definition in the Russian Federation), methodological grounding for the total quality control implementation into the strategic planning of the corporate entity, the development of the tools and system of the strategic planning basing on the quality management methods. …
