The goal of the article is to reveal specific features of adaptation mechanism of corporations, its essence and specific features of realisation. In the result of the study, the article systemised views on the essence of the "adaptation" notion, specific features and factors of activity of their adaptation mechanism. It identifies that corporations are among the systems that become today an important object of scientific cognition. It characterises factors of the environment, which influence adaptation of corporations, and offers to divide them into internal and external ones. It justifies that factors of external environment are primary with respect to factors of the internal one and serve as an incentive for carrying out quantitative and qualitative changes in a corporation. State plays one of the leading roles among the factors of external environment. The article analyses methods, means and variants of strategies, which could be used by companies as the basis of realisation of the mechanism of adaptation to environment conditions. Results of the study could be a basis of deepening of the theories of adaptation and corporations, development of practical tools of identification of conditions of provision of resistance of corporations to the influence of the environment factors. The further studies should be oriented at identification of the type diversity of adaptation of corporations to environment conditions and also realisation of the backward active influence upon the environment of their functioning.
