Assessing the impact of prices fluctuation on demand distortion within a multi-echelon supply chain
Francisco Campuzano Bolarín, Antonio Guillamón Frutos, Andrej Lisec, 2011, review article

Abstract: Price fluctuation is a practice commonly used by companies to stimulate demand and a main cause of the Bullwhip effect. Assuming a staggered step demand pattern that responds elastically to retailer’s price fluctuation, and by using a supply chain management dynamic model, we will analyse the impact of these fluctuations on the variability of the orders placed along a traditional multilevel supply chain. Subsequently, the results obtained will serve to propose a forecasting model enabling to calculate the potential variability of orders placed by each echelon on the basis of the price pattern used. Finally, under the hypothesis of an environment of collaboration between the different members of the chain, we propose a predictive model that makes it possible to quantify the distortion of the orders generated by each level.
Keywords: bullwhip effect, systems dynamics, price fluctuation, supply chain management

Management concepts transformation in Slovenia
Duško Uršič, Marjan Pivka, 2000, original scientific article

Abstract: In the last ten years Slovenia has been faced with a quite holistic transition of general social and organisation life. In our paper, first of all, we will emphasise the model of transition of management in Slovenia with presentation of field research results from our several years lasting research of management in Slovenia. The presented model of transition is based on the systems approach as our methodological version of systems thinking. This approach has been developed by our team since 1992 and it allowed research of way of thinking of managers about the transition of management concepts and effects of prevailed application projects, both at the same time and in interaction.
Keywords: Slovenia, transition, transition economics, management, organization, research, models, systems, company theory, system theory, thinking

HRM model in tourism, based on Dialectical systems theory
Simona Šarotar Žižek, Sonja Treven, Matjaž Mulej, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: A human resources management (HRM) model integrating trends in HRM with trends in tourism into a dialectical system by the Dialectical Systems Theory (DST). HRM strategy, integrated within the tourism organization´s (TO´S) strategy is implemented through functional strategies helping their users to achieve a requisitely holistic (RH) HRM strategy replacing the prevailing one-sided ones. TO´S strategy covers: employees (1) planning, (2) acquisition and selection, (3) development and training, (4) diversity management, (5) teamwork and creativity, (6) motivation and rewarding, (7) stress reduction and health, (8) relationships, (9) personal holism, (10) well-being, (11) work and results assessment; etc. Everyone matters; their synergy is crucial. An innovated HRM model for TOs, which applies employees´, organizations´ RH and integrates new knowledge about HRM. HRM belongs to central managers´ tools. Their HRM must be adapted for TOs, where employees are crucial.
Keywords: tourism, human resources management, well-being, Dialectical Systems Theory, social responsibility, organizational cybernetics

Knowledge-cum-values management belongs to the way out from global crisis
Zdenka Ženko, Matjaž Mulej, Vojko Potočan, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: Background: The contemporary world-wide socio-economic crisis tends to escalate and contribute to the global crisis. Limitation of education to one-sided ‘knowledge management’ rather than socially responsible ‘knowledge-cum-values-management’ is one of the crisis’s causes. Objectives: The limitations to current knowledge management should be analyzed with systemic thinking. Which values are prevailing in it now and which values will enable the survival of humankind? Methods/Approach: In the first part, literature is reviewed for analysis and conceptual generalization of knowledge management. The theoretical framework based on ‘system theory’, ‘knowledge management’ and ‘knowledge-cum-values management’, and ‘values of social responsibility’ is introduced. In the second part a new theoretical concept “A potential methodological support for human transition from one-sided to requisitely holistic behavior via social responsibility” is discussed. Results: Knowledge management is a too narrow concept, it tends to leave aside human values, an impact on the natural environment, and extremely growing differences. Humankind needs consideration of responsibility, interdependence and holism in order to minimize detrimental impact of individual behaviour on society, i.e. humans and nature. Conclusions: The research indicates that individuals should attain more requisite holism, and should not be irrational by trying to attain only rationalism in human decision-making and action.
Keywords: knowledge-cum-values management, Dialectical Systems Theory, corporate social responsibility

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.

EMAS
Manuela Ingaldi, Dorota Klimecka-Tatar, 2016, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: The companies operating within the so-understood environment, affecting it, have led its degradation. Therefore, to prevent further pollution, a number of laws, policies and strategies were introduced. The article briefly describes all the most important rules. According to the Polish and EU legislation, these companies must take care of the environment and properly manage waste generated during the production process (Ingaldi 2013a). The waste management is particularly a major challenge for small and medium sized company mainly due to the costs connected with adaptation to the existing legislation. Not every company can afford such changes. Very often the companies prefer to pay the penalty because, from the economic point of view, it is lower than these costs. Very often, it also appears that investments in the environmental protection repeatedly exceed the amount of any possible benefits that can be achieved. However, despite of the situation on market there are a lot of companies for which the natural environment is a priority (Ingaldi 2013b). One of the most important element is environmental management is recycling of secondary raw materials. It helps to reduce raw materials, which in turn contributes to the protection of natural resources of the earth. It also reduces the amount of space in landfills. The use of waste, which are carriers of energy, is a component of efficient energy management (Lestyánszka Škůrková, Ingaldi 2014; Ingaldi Borkowski 2014). Management systems, especially environmental management systems, are very helpful tools in environmental management in companies. A management system is the framework of processes and procedures used to ensure that an organization can fulfil all tasks required to achieve its objectives. The environmental management system enables organizations to improve their environmental performance through a process of continuous improvement. It is therefore important to convince managers of companies to be interested in such systems. The object of this chapter is to help a reader to find summary about main standards of management systems, e.g.: EMAS, ISO 14000, ISO 9000 and ISO 26000.
