Interception of values as a result of the business model restructuring – case study

Summary

The main objective of this paper is to present a case of value interception as a result of restructuring the business model of a manufacturing company that operates in the agricultural machinery sector. A company that focuses on core activities in the value chain and commissions the manufacturing of most components to specialised suppliers – as a result of restructuring – becomes an integrator that controls all parts of the supply chain; from obtaining a raw material, through its own production of a possibly large number of components, to the distribution of a finished composite product. The framework of the conducted research featured the identification of the relationships occurring between own production of components comprising a given product, and an alternative solution, i.e. possibility of acquiring them by way of co-operation. The authors assumed that a derivative of the value intercepted in the finished product implementation process is the number of components manufactured using own production resources.

Implementation competences as an attribute of executive employees of the flexible organisation – an attempt of their assessment among manufacturers of the agricultural machinery sector

Summary

Based on theoretical knowledge, own professional experience and conducted research, according to the authors, the paper’s objective is to develop and empirically verify the theoretical model of implementation competences of the executive employees of manufacturing companies of the agricultural machinery sector. The main objective achievement required to formulate and reach partial objectives, which include: a) discussion and organisation of terminological issues in terms of understanding the term of implementation competences, b) development of a general model of the executive employees’ implementation competences, which is a sign of knowledge, skills, personality features, attitudes and values, c) empirical verification of the theoretical model; prioritisation of individual implementation competences in the assessment of executive employees or owners of selected companies and determination of competence weaknesses, which are characteristic of the executive personnel of these companies.

Trust as a factor activating implementation abilities – from theory to practice of a flexible company

Summary

As a result of the wide recognition of the importance of trust as an element related to the cooperation in a variable and hardly predictable environment, the trust was appreciated by management sciences. Thanks to the trust, the organisation can react quickly to changes in a complex and turbulent environment, in which it is necessary to develop new - adequate to the needs - products. In the context of the above, the research was commenced, whose execution was the condition of an attempt to answer the question: is the number of the products implemented by the manufacturer a derivative of trust built between him/her and his/her recipients? In the context of such a question, the main objective of the paper is an attempt to illustrate trust - created by the manufacturer - as an attribute promoting his/her implementation flexibility. The achievement of such an objective is possible thanks to a detailed case analysis of the selected implementation process, which confirms that good relationships between partners - as a result of the increase in production series - may imply a decrease in its unit costs, which leads to significant profits in the long term.

Dynamic competences in the opinion of the machine sector experts – from management theory to practice

Summary

Dynamic competence in the opinion of the machinery sector experts - from theory to management practice The main objective of this paper is an attempt to reply to the question: how is the concept of dynamic competence understood by representatives of the manufacturing companies operating in the Polish agricultural machinery sector? Within the theoretical and design measures, a method of reconstruction and interpretation of literature implying the discussion in a group of intentionally selected experts operating in the examined sector will be used; as a result of the creative discussion, the key designates of dynamic competence will be generated. At the empirical level, it was considered appropriate to determine the hierarchy of their importance. The task of deliberately selected respondents will be to make a choice as to which of the suggested dimensions of the dynamic competence best reflects the sense of this concept.

Technical dynamic capabilities in the opinion of Polish producers from the agricultural machines sector1

Summary

The main aim of this paper is to develop a model of key technical dynamic capabilities providing implementation flexibility of manufacturing companies of the Polish agricultural sector. Achieving the main target required to formulate sub-targets, to which the following have been included: the query of subject literature remaining in a direct relation to the topic of the research, which, in the authors’ intention, will find its expression in the developed definition of technical dynamic capabilities. At the design level, it is essential to search for the answer to the question: what technical capabilities imply dynamic flexibility of the Polish manufacturers of the agricultural machinery sector?, while, at the empirical level, to prioritize individual technical dynamic capabilities and determine what deficiencies in this area are characteristic for the studied companies.

Management and quality sciences as a discussion implicator on the maturity of Polish manufacturers of the agricultural machinery sector

Summary

In the paper, an attempt was made to answer the following question: what is the maturity level of the Polish companies operating in the agricultural machinery sector within the area of the implementation of quality management principles, methods and tools? In reference to such an outlined purpose, as necessary activities, it was recommended: at the theoretical level – using the reconstruction and interpretation method of the subject literature – to nominate the questions giving opinions on the maturity level in the sphere of the effective implementation of quality management principles, methods and tools; at the design level – to compile a research tool in the form of an assessment sheet that constitutes a result of the literature exploration and discussion among deliberately chosen experts; and at the empirical level – questioning among manufacturers of parts, components and finished agricultural machinery.
