More than 20 years after the idea of business process-driven management was born there still exist essential insufﬁciencies in the understanding of how business processes should be modeled in order to respect this idea. These insufﬁciencies are manifesting themselves even in the existing modeling standards. As the modeling of business process is a necessary ﬁrst step in the process of implementing the process-driven management idea, this situation seems to be a main barrier of the needed putting this idea into the real life.
The emergence of ICT technologies in the modern era has facilitated and ameliorated the execution of critical business processes. Agriculture is a domain where automation is present in various forms, important and enables farmers increase productivity and improve environmental policies. However, the “industries are faced with numerous types of natural and man-made threats and disruptions” (Maboudian & Rezaie, 2017). As a consequence, effective policies against such threats should be developed.

Transparency in the public sector is still a topical issue in contemporary society. The concept of transparency has been one of the most discussed topics within good governance over the last 20 years, and therefore it at-tracts interest for academic study. The consequences of transparency and also the circumstances that trigger transparency, are studied intensively. The attention given to the concept of transparency appears to have in-creased, mainly due to the spread of the Internet; hence, this paper particularly focuses on transparency enabled by the Internet (Sičáková-Beblavá, Kollárik, & Sloboda, 2016).

The need for effective planning and management is on the increase along with the increasing complexity and laboriousness of making changes or creating new value. Project management is an ideal tool in this respect (Schwable,2011; Bočková et al., 2005). The risks associated with deadlines or budgets are extremely serious. Problems of project modelling and simulation are highly topical at the present time, because the application of project management principles is expanding into further areas – change management (Cummings et al., 2016; Yin-xiang, 2013), crisis management (Wimelius & Engberg, 2015), innovation management (Balkienė, 2013; Dudzevičiūtė & Tvaronavičienė, 2011; Grossmann, 2009), etc. – which have only very basic features of projects.
Knowledge, the implementation of information and communication technologies (ICT) and innovations are considered to be the key factors of success that can ensure economic growth for individuals, companies even for whole countries. It is not different in the school environment. As well as in the economic sphere also in the school environment it is necessary to count with a minimal stability and certainty. The only thing that is certain in today’s world is permanent change. For successful existence in this turbulent environment it is very important to learn how to cope with changes and the quickly transforming world.
