Analysis of innovation concepts in Slovenian manufacturing companies
Iztok Palčič, Borut Buchmeister, Andrej Polajnar, 2010, original scientific article

Abstract: Competitive advantages of manufacturing companies are not only generated by R&D based product innovations but also by technical and non-technical process innovations aiming to modernise manufacturing processes. This paper presents the use of selected innovation concepts in Slovenian manufacturing companies. Later we analyse the relationship of the use of selected technical and organisational innovation concepts and companies performance indicators. The results show that R&D expenses and innovation concepts are not always correlated and that there is a difference in innovation concepts utilisation between low, medium and high-tech industries. The data were obtained with The European Manufacturing Survey (EMS) that was conducted in 2009 within nine European countries. For the purpose of this paper we use data of Slovenian manufacturing companies.

The influential knowledge factors of companies' performance in Slovenia
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).

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.
