    The Principles of Implementing Early Recognition Systems in an Organization
    (Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu - National-Louis University in Nowy Sącz, 2014) Bąk, Janusz; Baran, Grzegorz
    In the context of the turbulent environment, contemporary organizations have to work out and implement tools enabling them to handle the turbulence, and primarily, to avoid negative consequences of these processes. The tools are related, among others, to obtaining and providing managers, sufficiently in advance, with adequate management information on the environment. Early Recognition Systems (ERS) are a response to such conditions of the organization functioning and the challenge in respect of information support for decision-making processes. Unfortunately, they are mainly of informalized character, dispersed on various levels and in various functional areas of organizations, and very often based on unconscious, habitual actions, and, in consequence, their advancement and effectiveness are low. Based on the main characteristics of early recognition systems, the article presents the framework procedure of systemic solutions in the area of early recognition, which is supposed to enable formally organized activities within this scope.

    (Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu - National-Louis University in Nowy Sącz, 2014) Baran, Grzegorz; Bąk, Janusz
    Innovation, innovation economy, innovation management are all crucial issues in both theory and practice of management. The purpose of this paper is to provide mechanisms for the use of corporate community involvement in public affairs as a source of innovation for both business organizations and in relation to ways of solving social problems and pursuing public purposes. The use of business engagement in social affairs as a source and inspiration for innovation and the mechanisms of responsible use of that business engagement by community and public organizations were analyzed. Companies have discovered that social problems have their economic side and the involvement in solving the problems of the public sector can strongly stimulate their own business processes. The new paradigm for innovation grows in the field of cooperation between private business and public interest, generating positive and permanent changes for both sides. There is a strong need for the cause social responsiveness and increased social sensitivity, not only on the side of the business but also in public organizations.

    (Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu - National-Louis University in Nowy Sącz, 2013) Bąk, Janusz
    Operating in a turbulent environment requires seeking and perfecting tools for information support of the strategic management process. The key activity in this area is to recognize and interpret weak signals and undertake adequate actions which will lead to the strengthening of the strategic position. However, in this process a number of barriers appear, which arise from the dysfunction of the organizational system and thus limiting its ability for early recognition of changes in the environment. In the following article, the author attempts to identify barriers arising in the organizational system on an individual, group and organizational level and their conditionings, as well as to indicate the framework directions of actions enabling improved effectiveness in the functioning of the system.

    For some time we can observe the increasing popularity of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as the direction dominant over the classical economic model first in the United States, and then also in many countries of the European Union. A necessary element of effective implementation of CSR in public organizations are their transparency and legitimacy. This article aims to formulate the problem of the role of public organizations responsibility for the transparency of activities undertaken in the context of the pursuit of such a transformation of public management that these organizations have become much more socially responsible. For the wording of the problem is much broader argument that says that deficits in social responsibility in public organizations do not arise only because of people, but above all because the wrong management structure. Management in public organizations may not be a simple reflection of that known from the commercial sector.

    (Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu - National-Louis University w Nowym Sączu, 2009) Baran, Grzegorz
    For some time we can observe the increasing popularity of corporate social responsibility (CSR) as the direction dominant over the classical economic model first in the United States, and then also in many countries of the European Union. A necessary element of effective implementation of CSR in organizations is reporting the effects of social activity. The purpose of this article is to present the nature of the social reporting, being a part of the link with the organization strategy and the adopted business model. Because there are quite a large discrepancy in the ways of perception of what CSR is, an attempt was made to recognize the responsibility to be able to convert it in the form of areas and indicators of reporting.

The author offers the conceptualization of key constructs, uses the methodology of path analysis in the form of structural equation modeling (SEM, supported by Amos 17.0 used at the data analysis stage) to confirm his hypothesis, and suggests a possible causal link between the key constructs.

    (Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu - National-Louis University w Nowym Sączu, 2009) Bąk, Janusz
    Contemporary organization operate in complex, highly volatile, and stochastic environments. A large number of interacting variables lead to unpredictable results. It is therefore necessary to study the components of the environment, and the relationships among them, as well as identify their unique properties, so that predictions can be made with an appropriate time lag. Early recognition systems make it possible to cope with turbulent environments. The following article offers a literature review with the goal of identifying universal phases in the operation of early recognition systems.

    Pomiar lojalności na rynku usług - empiryczna weryfikacja trafności wybranych symptomów lojalności
    (Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu - National-Louis University w Nowym Sączu, 2008) Stach, Przemysław
    The purpose of this paper is to examine empirically hypothesized validity of a set of symptoms of customer loyalty. Inspired by the customer loyalty literature, the author sets a number of hypotheses, which are then verified using primary data coming from a sample of 693 valid responses. The author found empirical evidence of significant, yet weak relationship between prefer- ence for the service-provider when faced with a choice, and commitment to continue using provider’s services. Unfortunately, the confirmed symptoms are not able to fully account for customer loyalty, which implies the need to identify other valid symptoms to complement the model. In addition to that, it seems reasonable to seek further verification of the obtained results in a series of studies conducted in a variety of specific service contexts.

    Identification and Interpretation of the Importance of Customer Service Satisfaction Factors
    (Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu - National-Louis University, 2012) Stach, Przemysław; Staliński, Piotr; Stawicka, Monika
    Customer satisfaction is shaped by their experience over the whole supplier - customer relation cycle, i.e., throughout a pre-transactional, transactional and post-transactional phase, respectively. Customer service is the process that unites all three phases. Therefore planning efficient customer service should be based on the priorities which customers value most in the process and which have the strongest impact on their satisfaction. The literature and practice indicate at least two ways which allow one to establish customer-perceived significance of market offerings’ attributes. However, each way leads to a different customer’s reality and supports different managerial decisions. Understanding of those alternative ways enables decision-makers to take more appropriate steps and consequently achieve higher levels of customer satisfaction. In this article, we attempt to uncover the implications of alternative procedures to identify customer perceived importance of market offering aspects: stated importance and derived importance. We verify our claims using the data from an exploratory study of personal insulin pumps users.
