Influence of personal variables on entrepreneurial intention: A comparative study between Poland and Spain

Introduction The literature confirms the need to identify and strengthen the factors, on which the process of creating new companies depends, due to the high influence that entrepreneurship has on the economic growth and development of countries ( Urbano, Aparicio & Audretsch, 2018 ). In the studies developed by researchers and the reports and documents prepared periodically by the GEM (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor), it is confirmed that these factors are eminently contextual and personal ( Busenitz et al., 2014 ). Although the contextual factors of

Influence of Modern Process Performance Indicators on Corporate Performance — the Empirical Study

to management based on enterprise search and analysis from the point of view of business activities and activities performed by managing staff. The basic idea of the process approach is that low business performance is caused by ineffective internal processes which should be changed, aiming to increase efficiency and higher added value for the customer. For many authors, process management is the most substantial breakthrough of the 20th century. Process management presents systems, procedures, methods and tools for sustainable maximised performance and continuous

Significance of biological membranes for accurate computational dosimetry of low frequency electric fields

, and to attain this field in specific regions of the brain, the electric current should pass through different head layers via skin, fat, skull, meninges, and cortex (part of the brain). In order to model the brain, different layers should be considered, including gray and white matters. The meninges, three layers of protective tissue, cover the outer surface of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and comprise three connective tissue layers viz. (from the innermost to the outermost layer) the pia mater, arachnoid and the dura mater. The meninges also

Reduction of defects in the lapping process of the silicon wafer manufacturing: the Six Sigma application

Introduction The semiconductor industry consists of companies engaged in the design and fabrication of semiconductor devices, which form the foundation of modern electronics. The industry began in the 1960s and currently accounts for about 0.5% of the global GDP ($299.5 billion). It also enables the generation of approximately $1200 billion in the electronic systems business and $5000 billion in services, representing close to 10% of the global GDP, thus gaining the recognition for its critical role in the supply chain of the electronics industry ( Kazmierski

Benchmarking of contributory organisations within the framework of technical efficiency

-hours and client-hours, client satisfaction rates, number of employees and their attendance, occupancy rate of facilities. According to Malíková (2011) , several methods and techniques can be used to measure the quality and efficiency of social services such as quality standards of social services; supervision, intervision; TQM (Total Quality Management); ABC (Activity Based Costing), Balanced Scorecard; controlling; benchmarking; complaints; self-assessment and others. The methods range from simple metrics to complex metrics such as Balanced Scorecard. This is a system
