INNOVATIVE SUPPLIER PARTNERSHIP ASSESSMENT MODEL IN A POLISH TRADING ENTERPRISE

Rafał Tyszkiewicz, Agnieszka Pawlak-Wolanin, Julita Markiewicz-Patkowska, Soňa Jandová, Piotr Oleśniewicz, Helena Jáčová, Monika Tyszkiewicz

The relationship between a company and a supplier is a strategic resource for both parties. However, not every such relationship can be considered strategic. In order for a relationship to assume strategic importance, it must be special (or unique) in some terms and difficult to imitate. Otherwise, it will not contribute to making the company stand out against the competition. Such relationships may be formed in two areas. Firstly, they may be intended to increase the company’s access to financial resources; secondly, they facilitate investment (Tyszkiewicz, 2017b). It is noteworthy that partnership is based on such elements as trust and communication. These factors produce a continuous and deepening effect to ensure long-term results satisfactory for both parties involved. It is also significant to define the roles, tasks, and responsibilities of the suppliers and the clients, as well as to fairly share risks, costs, and profits arising from implementation of new initiatives (Christopher, 2000).

Microfranchising: nový nástroj rozvojové pomoci

Vendula Macháčková

Tento příspěvek přináší shrnutí výzkumu, který autorka prováděla na podzim roku 2012. Příspěvek je zaměřen na téma microfranchisingu.Tento pojem vyjadřuje užití franchisingového podnikatelského konceptu jako nástroje rozvojové pomoci (definice autorky).

Source Identification of Potential Malfunction of Balanced Scorecard System and Its Influence on System Function

Beáta Gavurová

Since the first publication of the article about the Balanced Scorecard system (BSC) by the authors Kaplan and Norton [21], there was publicized many books and professional and scientific reports related to this topic [6], [7], [17]. Empirical researches of practical applications that exist within them refer to identical statement that states: “there exist only few experimental papers with this topic” [2], [3], [8], [15], [27], [28]. This was the reason for substantiation of the solution meaning for a performance measurement of the BSC system in Slovakia, where there has not been realized any complex study of the BSC system implementation yet.
