Regional organizations are affected by a number of factors hindering their active development. Special attention is paid to the results of the organizations’ financial activities and their connection with low investment and innovation activity. The results of the study show that the Vologda industry is in stagnation and requires additional reserves for active growth, managers are forced to choose between financing different spheres of enterprise’s activity to ensure its stability. Respondents consider the tax, monetary and economic policies of the authorities to be inconsistent with the sustainable development of the industrial sector. The scientific significance of the work is to determine the problems of the region’s industrial development on the basis of the real sector of the economy representatives’ opinions.
