The book aims to measure and evaluate the use/success of operational budgeting in Polish companies and to identify and measure the determinants of success, based on the suggested model. It focuses mainly on: (a) the role of operational budgeting in the process of managing a company, (b) the variables that influence how the use/success of operational budgeting is assessed, to present factors that determine individual variables, and to identify the relationships and links between them, and (c) a model that helps to measure and evaluate the use/success of operational budgeting. This book tries to fill the knowledge gap on the quality and benefits that arise from well-designed Operational Budgeting Systems. To get benefits, it is necessary to assess the current budget system. With that, the author reduces ambiguity about assessing the use of operational budgeting. The author limits her approach to the production sector and Poland. Still, I believe this approach can be expanded across the sectors and countries. Therefore, I see a relevant contribution in practice. Also, it opens the way and shows directions to diagnosing and improving firms’ Operational Budgeting Systems. This publication is commendable; it puts traditional budgeting – which has been highly criticized into context and presents its value, role, and its contribution in a Control System. In response to those criticisms, the author points to the quality aspect of operational budgeting, showing its usefulness to users and organizations.

Innovation and sustainable development have become buzzwords in the 21st century with the idea of creative destruction launched by Joseph Alois Schumpeter being the base for evolutionary economics. However, new institutional economics helps to understand the necessity of support provided to entrepreneurs and innovators by science and administration to reduce the risk of launching the said innovations. This e-book is devoted to selected types of innovation. Every type of innovation is described with the use of theoretical background and is enriched by adequate case study. Traditional division into four types of innovation, proposed by J.A. Schumpeter (1934), containing product, process, organizational and marketing innovations, was widely accepted, including European Union institutions (OECD/Eurostat, 2008). The concept of innovation has long been dominated by a technical approach to the innovation process, despite the economic arguments exposed by one of the precursors of the theory of innovation and, at the same time, the school of evolutionary economics—Joseph Alois Schumpeter. Frequently, in the context of innovation, it is indicated that organizational and marketing aspects play a part in the successful introduction of innovation onto the market. The structure of the book is based on the typology proposed by Keeley, Walters, Pikkel and Quinn (2013), which focuses on the economic character of innovations. Ten types of innovation are directly related to Schumpeter’s and Oslo Manual classification. A new set of innovations emphasize the economic side of innovation process. The technical novelties are to support new configuration, offering or customers’ experience. This new approach is based on presumptions coming from design thinking idea, leading to user—driven innovation and on cooperation with institutions and entities supporting innovation process. The chapters are devoted to every type of innovation, grouped into three major parts: innovations based on configuration, offering and experience. In the book, configuration includes types of innovations focused on innermost workings of an enterprise and its business system. Offering part contains the types of innovations, that are focused on an enterprise’s core product (good or service), or a collection of its products. The last part, dedicated to innovations based on experience, is focused on more customer-facing elements of an enterprise and its business system.

The monograph is focused on the issue of the global economy of the 21st century and an ongoing transformation of typical enterprises, based on the division of functions and hierarchical structures, into network organisations with hybrid, globally-dispersed connections. The author argues that the most powerful corporations (Top-TNCs), in their strive to maintain the position of sector-specific leaders and the associated long-term competitiveness, pursue the model of business integration and position themselves as orchestrators of global business networks (GBNs). This monograph aims to prove that global business networks are a new model of building international competitiveness based on the concepts of networking, orchestration, and coopetition. The assessment of GBN competitiveness requires a multi-dimensional approach, enabling the evaluation of the synergic influence of both economic and intellectual capital on the process of creation of added value.

The aim of the e-book is to present the theoretical, cognitive and practical aspects of the essence and complexity of operational management in a production company. The presented modern production methods together with the challenges and problems of contemporary enterprises should better help to understand the issues of sustainable development, with particular emphasis on waste. The book consists of six chapters devoted to relevant and topic issues relating to the core business of an industrial enterprise. Chapter 1 The nature of the industrial enterprise is an introduction to further considerations and deals with the essence of the basic aspects of the company. Both popular and less known definitions of an enterprise, its features, functions and principles of operation are presented. An important part of the chapter is the presentation and formulation of strategic, tactical and operational goals. Moreover, the division of enterprises is presented with the use of various criteria and the features of the industrial market, which make it distinct. Chapter 2 The operational management evolution and its role in the industrial enterprise discusses the evolution and concept of production and operational management. The management levels were also presented, indicating their most important functions. An integral part of the chapter is the essence of the production system, viewed through the prism of the five elements. Chapter 3 Functions and role in operations management presents the issues concerning the organization of production processes, production capacity and inventory management. This part also presents considerations on cooperation and collaboration between enterprises in the process of creating value. Chapter 4 Traditional methods used in operational activities focuses on methods such as benchmarking, outsourcing, core competences, JIT, MPR I and MRP II, as well as TQM and kaizen. Knowledge of these methods should contribute to understanding the activities of modern enterprises, the way of company functioning, the realization of production activities, as well as aspects related to building a competitive position. Chapter 5 Modern methods used in production-operations management discusses the less common and less frequently used production methods, based on a modern and innovative approach. In particular, it was focused on: Shop Floor Control and cooperative manufacturing, environment-conscious manufacturing (ECM) and life-cycle assessment ( LCA), waste management and recycling, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), virtual enterprise, World Class Manufacturing (WCM), Quality Function Deployment (QFD) and House of Quality (HOQ), theory of constraints (TOC), Drum Buffer Rope (DBR), group technology (GT) and cellular manufacturing (CM), Demand Chain Management and competitive intelligence (CI). In the last section discusses: the role of sustainable statistical process control and Computer-Aided Process Planning in context formatting of information management. Chapter 6 Problems of sustainable development and challenges related to production and operations management describes the problem and challenges related to production and operations activities. In particular, attention was paid to the threats related to changes in global warming, the growing scale of waste, or the processes of globalization. It was pointed out that the emerging problem may be both a threat and a chance for the development of enterprises. An integral part of the chapter are also considerations on technical progress, innovation and the importance of human capital in operational activities.

Zmiany zachodzące na rynku, związane z coraz większą konkurencją, powodują, że przedsiębiorcy szukają rozwiązań dotyczących nie tylko utrzymania się na nim, lecz również rozwoju, co ma służyć poprawie ich pozycji względem innych jednostek gospodarczych. Zarządzanie kosztami i pomiar dokonań stanowią istotny element systemu podejmowania decyzji w przedsiębiorstwach. Są one stosowane w przedsiębiorstwach nie tylko dużych, ale również średnich i małych. Każda działalność jednostki gospodarczej generuje koszty, które powinny być pod stałą kontrolą zarządzających. Jest to temat wciąż aktualny w artykułach naukowych publikowanych w Polsce i na świecie, poruszany zarówno przez teoretyków, jak i praktyków. Niniejszy zeszyt Prac Naukowych Uniwersytetu Ekonomicznego we Wrocławiu jest poświęcony zagadnieniom zarządzania kosztami i pomiarowi dokonań. W związku z tym zawarte w nim artykuły dotyczą dwóch odrębnych tematycznie obszarów: • zarządzania kosztami, • zarządzania dokonaniami. W obrębie każdego z nich zaprezentowano problemy zarówno teoretyczne, jak i praktyczne dotyczące systemów kosztów w podejmowaniu decyzji, mierników dokonań, raportowania dokonań. Artykuły poświęcone zarządzaniu kosztami mają głównie charakter praktyczny. Ukazują przypadki jego zastosowania w szpitalu, podmiocie świadczącym usługi komunalne, szkole wyższej oraz w organach administracji podatkowej. Skupiają się również na rozważaniach poświęconych kontroli kosztów w jednostkach mikro, wprowadzonych do ustawy o rachunkowości w 2014 roku. Teksty związane z tematyką zarządzania dokonaniami są połączeniem rozważań teoretycznych z empirycznymi. Dociekania teoretyczne dotyczą zagadnień pomiaru dokonań, raportowania dokonań, zastosowania narzędzi, jakimi są zrównoważona karta dokonań, budżetowanie, oraz kreowania wartości przedsiębiorstwa. Artykuły związane z wdrożeniem zarządzania dokonaniami w jednostkach gospodarczych dotyczą takich podmiotów, jak: zakład gospodarowania odpadami, jednostki samorządu terytorialnego, podmioty lecznicze, banki. Redaktorzy zeszytu mają nadzieję, że opublikowane w nim artykuły będą inspiracją do poszukiwań nowych rozwiązań w obszarze zarządzania kosztami i dokonaniami, a jednocześnie pomogą rozwiązać problemy związane z ich wykorzystaniem w wybranych organizacjach.

Przestrzeń jest współcześnie ważnym czynnikiem wzrostu i rozwoju społeczno-gospodarczego. Sposób jej zagospodarowania często przesądza o konkurencyjności miejsc i podmiotów. W związku z tym gospodarka przestrzenna na początku XXI wieku odgrywa istotną rolę w rozwoju miast i regionów. W niniejszej publikacji zostały zaprezentowane różne podejścia do gospodarki przestrzennej w kontekście jej wpływu na rozwój współczesnych miast i regionów. Zebrano w niej wyniki badań i przemyśleń autorów zajmujących się aspektami gospodarki przestrzennej: ekonomicznymi, społecznymi, politycznymi, prawnymi oraz środowiskowymi. Czytelnik znajdzie tu wiele informacji oraz studia przypadków dotyczące m.in.: rewitalizacji, odnowy i gentryfikacji obszarów zurbanizowanych, budowy zielonej gospodarki i zielonej infrastruktury, wdrażania koncepcji inteligentnych miast, relacji miasto-rzeka. Duży nacisk kładziony jest na zagospodarowanie przestrzeni miejskich na konkretnych przykładach, ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem funkcji handlowej. Autorzy poruszają także problematykę suburbanizacji i rozlewania się miast oraz ich konsekwencji dla zagospodarowania przestrzennego, nawiązując m.in. do możliwości współpracy międzygminnej w tym zakresie. Kolejny wątek to polityka transportowa oraz wpływ infrastruktury na rozwój lokalny. W publikacji znajdziemy też wyniki badania nastawienia władz małych miast do planowania strategicznego. Autorzy prezentują również zagadnienia partycypacji społecznej i jej roli w kształtowaniu krajobrazu miejskiego, a także opracowania dotyczące: metodologii tworzenia terytorialnego foresightu strategicznego, aspektu teoretycznego partnerstwa publiczno-prywatnego, koncepcji powstawania regionalnych funduszy kapitałowych oraz mechanizmu zintegrowanych inwestycji terytorialnych. Nie zabrakło artykułów traktujących o polityce spójności i zmniejszaniu nierówności społecznych. Redaktorzy mają nadzieję, że publikacja, zawierająca nawiązania do nowych koncepcji naukowych oraz liczne studia przypadków, okaże się interesująca. Być może będzie ona inspiracją do dalszych badań oraz zachęci do dyskusji osoby zajmujące się różnymi aspektami gospodarki przestrzennej.

Contemporary management control and reporting both face challenges. Consequently, a new and more sophisticated scientific approach is needed. From one point of view, interdisciplinary studies and theories are necessary. From another point of view, empirical research and practical issues call for a more specific and specialized approach. This complexity is reflected by the content of this book, which covers topics that emerge from present world’s complexity. Therefore, the authors focus on ever-important issues (such as the strategic approach and its support by management control and reporting, survival of companies), and more modern issues (e.g. cultural aspects, measurement and reporting adjusted to branches, spheres and organizations and specific issues of management control and reporting). The strategic approach to managerial control and financial statements and their role for company’s survival is presented in papers by J. Dyczkowska (who addresses the question whether annual reports communicate strategic issues and focuses her study on reporting practices of high-tech companies), A. Bieńkowska, Z. Kral, A. Zabłocka-Kluczka (who explain the role of responsibility centers in strategic controlling), P. Kroflin (who explores the value-based management and management reporting examining impacts of value reporting on investment decisions and company value perception) and A. Reizinger-Ducsai (who discusses bankruptcy prediction and financial statements). The problems of management control and reporting and their adjustment to specific conditions and organizations are undertaken by T. Dyczkowski (who introduces his NGO performance model), Z. Kes and K. Nowosielski (who present the case study of the process of cost assignment in a local railway company providing passenger transportation services), S. Łęgowik--Świącik, M. Stępień, S. Kowalska and M. Łęgowik-Małolepsza (who analyse the efficiency of the heat market enterprise management process in terms of the concept of the cost of capital), and M. Pietrzak and P. Pietrzak (who discuss the problem of performance measurement in the public higher education). The cultural aspect of managerial control and reporting is explored in papers written by M. Nowak (who presents cultural determinants of accounting, performance management and costs problems showing the issue from Polish perspective using G. Hofstede and GLOBE cultural dimensions) and P. Bednarek, R. Brühl and M. Hanzlick (who provide a literature overview of planning and cross-cultural research). The specific problems and concepts of managerial control and reporting are investigated by M. Ciołek (who discusses the lean thinking and overhead costs), E. Nowak (who analyses the role of costs control role in controlling company operation), Ü. Pärl, R. Koyte, S. Näsi (who examine middle managers’ mediating role in MCS implementation), R.L. Sichel (who discusses the relevance of intellectual property for management control), J. Paranko and P. Huhtala (who analyse the productivity measurement at the factory level). Marta Nowak

The aim of this book is to present the most important issues related to sustainable development (SD) and corporate social responsibility (CSR). They are discussed from a macro and micro perspective, both in the form of theoretical foundations of these concepts and practical examples of companies operating in Central and Eastern European countries that have implemented these ideas in their daily operations and translated them into corporate and functional strategies. The book consists of four parts. The first one is theoretical in its assumptions and is devoted to explaining the key concepts of sustainable development (SD) and corporate social responsibility (CSR). The authors describe the determinants of sustainable development in the contemporary world, including the most important ones, such as globalization, climate change, poverty, unlimited consumption, as well as limited access to natural resources - all in relation to the goals of sustainable development. The chapter also discusses the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR), which is now recognized as the process by which business contributes to the implementation of sustainable development. How sustainable development (SD) and corporate social responsibility (CSR) are incorporated into the organization's strategies and influence the corporate strategy on the corporate and functional areas of the organization is presented in the last chapter of the first part of the e-book. The next part of the e-book helps readers understand the concepts of SD and CSR in the field of organizational strategy - in strategic management, and at the level of functional strategies—marketing, human resources, marketing research, accounting and operational management. The authors explain the reasons why companies need to consider the local and global perspective when setting SDGs, and the existence of potential conflicts within them. Taking into account the area of ​​marketing, the authors point to the increase in environmental and social awareness of all stakeholders, which translates into changes in the criteria for decision-making by managers and risk assessment. The issue of sustainability is also the subject of market research. Companies producing products and services, institutions dealing with environmental or consumer protection, scientists and students conduct many research projects related to, inter alia, much more. How to use secondary data for analysis and how to prepare, conduct, analyze and interpret the results of primary research in that area are discussed in detail in the next chapter of this section. The concept of SD also refers to the basic functions of human resource management (HRM)—recruitment, motivation, evaluation and control. They should take into account SD not only for the efficiency of the organization and long-term economic benefits, but also for ethical reasons. Thanks to the SHRM, the awareness and behavior of the entire organization can strongly express sustainable goals in the planning and implementation of the overall corporate strategy. The growing importance of the idea of ​​SD and the concept of CSR also resulted in the need for accounting and finance to develop solutions enabling the provision of information on the methods and results of implementing these concepts in entities operating on the market. This part of the book also examines manufacturing activities in the context of sustainability. As a result, many problems arise: waste of resources, mismanagement, excessive energy consumption, environmental pollution, use of human potential, etc. The chapter presents such concepts as: zero-waste, lean-manufacturing, six-sigma, circular production, design and recycling products in the life cycle as well as ecological and environmentally friendly production. The next two parts of the e-book contain examples of companies from Central and Eastern Europe that used SD goals in their strategies, questions and tasks for readers.
