Dimensions of decision-making process quality and company performance
Damjan Grušovnik, Alenka Kavkler, Duško Uršič, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: This paper investigates the relationship between the dimensions of the decision-making process quality and company performance of top managers’ in Slovenia. We found out that companies whose managers exhibit an above-average dimension of openness of spirit in the quality of the decision making process, on average, have a higher stance on foreign markets as companies in which managers show a below-average open spirit. For the managers who work in companies that are present in foreign markets, we could confirm that there is a low/weak correlation between the dimension of effort of the decision-making process quality and the number of employees in a company.
Keywords: quality of the decision-making process, rationality, motivation, participation, exhaustivity of the information, managers effort, creativity and innovativeness, company stakeholders, company performance

The impact of management control systems - strategy interaction on performance management
Darja Peljhan, Metka Tekavčič, 2008, original scientific article

Abstract: We study the interaction between management control systems and strategy its impact on organisational performance considering the way in which multiple aspects of control systems and dimensions of context combine in a variety of ways to enhance performance. Our purpose is to investigate the relationship among management control systems, strategy and organisational performance in a particular company. The contribution of this study is that it upgrades the existing theory in that it does not only establish a relationship between strategy and management control systems, but also considers how this relationships impacts on organisational performance. The study shows that the combination of performance-driven behaviour and regular use of management control systems leads to improved results. The second contribution of the study is that it incorporates a wider range of controls, including informal controls as being equally important as formal controls, to provide a more comprehensive analysis, as opposed to the majority of prior studies focusing on a more limited range of controls. In this way, this paper contributes to the literature in terms of examination of the broader components of management control systems than was previously done.

Can a company raise business success by using certain marketing communication activities?
Damijan Mumel, Nina Hočevar, Boris Snoj, 2007, short scientific article

Abstract: Companies use different marketing communication activities in order to communicate with their environment. Their decisions to use a specific activity are often the result of past experiences, habits or certain influences. Measurements related to the efficiency of their communication method, as well as the analysis concerning the effect of using a specific kind of marketing communication activity on different business success determinants are usually neglected. In this article, authors provide an analysis of a correlation between the use of a specific marketing communication activity and 13 different business success variables. Based on the research, it could be concluded that the net business result for the accounting period can be influenced by using printed advertisements in newspapers, radio commercials, press conferences, newsletters and sponsorship. Net return on assets showed a positive correlation with printed advertisements in newspapers and press conferences. Printed advertisements in newspapers and radio commercials have proved to influence net sales and, last but not least, authors discovered that the return on equity can be influenced by organizing press conferences and, by using leaflets, companies can expect to raise the net sales growth index.

Katja Rašič, Matjaž Mulej, Vesna Čančer, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: Background: Knowledge plays a crucial role in supporting the European Union model based on economic growth, social responsibility, and sustainable development. To improve companies’ performance, one must reflect on new forms of knowledge and develop new indicators to measure them. Objectives: The goal of the paper is to investigate the impact of the selected factors of knowledge on companies’ performance in Slovenia. Methods/Approach: A questionnaire was created and sent to small and medium-sized enterprises in Slovenia. The principle axis factoring method was used to identify the factors of knowledge and of companies’ performance, and a regression analysis was conducted to determine the influence of the selected knowledge factors on companies’ performance. Results: The establishment of scientists’ collaboration with companies has a positive impact on companies’ performance, but the obstacles to the establishment of scientists’ collaboration with companies do not have any impact. Conclusions: The results could be useful for governments and companies in the adoption of measures aimed at strengthening scientists’ collaboration with companies. Further research can be oriented toward the common synergy index (e.g., the knowledge triangle).
