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.

The task of the present paper is to outline a formalized qualitative model (FQM) of online trust (OT). OT is vital for establishing and maintaining commercial relationships on the internet (Grabner-Kraeuter, 2002; Van Der Heijden et al., 2003; Kim et al., 2008; 2012; Beldad et al., 2010; Delina & Dráb, 2010). Trust is especially important when there is relative lack of certainty, formal rules, customs and agreements (Bradach et al., 1989; Gefen & Straub, 2004), as is often the case with e-commerce interaction and online interaction in general (Gefen, 2000; McKnight et al., 2002; Gefen & Straub, 2004).

The modern enterprise environment, in both the private and the public sector, is mainly characterized by the strong presence of information technologies, complex business functions and multiple software applications and electronic platforms. As a consequence, more and more IT managers are concerned about the possibility of system failure in case of an emergency or a crisis situation, which could result to the interruption of the critical business activities of the enterprise and, respectively, trigger signiﬁcant economic damage.

Measuring and managing business performance is a relatively complex and difﬁcult process which is undergoing signiﬁcant changes both in practice and in research. Despite the ongoing effort to improve the methodology used, it seems that the traditional business performance management based primarily on ﬁnancial management has reached its limits and in recent years we have seen the development of new non-traditional indicators, methods and models based primarily on non-ﬁnancial methods, in particular on strategic and other qualitative indicators.
