Europe After The Lisbon Treaty. Strategies for the Future

he question of what to do to educa- te leaders not only on a global, but also on a European scale, was asked by Jacek Poświata, Managing Director at McKinsey & Company, who concluded that among Polish companies which have been developing well so far, there are le- aders on a regional scale. Consequently, he formulated the question “Why hasn’t it been possible in Poland to make a Polish Nokia yet?” Henryka Bochniarz, President of the Polish Confederation of Private Em- ployers - Lewiatan, claimed that during the crisis Poland did not record a fall in production thanks to small and medium- sized entrepreneurs. “It was exactly these companies, which, thanks to their adapta- bility and development, had an absolutely dominating inuence upon the condi- tion of our economy.” The question arises whether we should really focus on the large ones?

ccording to Jan Krzysztof Bielec- ki, Chairman of the Economic Co- uncil of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland, Poland’s weakness is the fact that we cannot appreciate what we have, we cannot create value in what we have and that we tend to adopt a do- gmatic approach instead of increasing value every day. Research shows that in Poland there are partly-state-owned companies which are proverbial hens laying golden eggs but they are not fully used to do just that. The Polish experience, when it comes to corporate order, is not unequivocal. An- drzej Klesyk, President of the Board and General Director at PZU S.A. emphasised that in many state-owned companies, such as Orlen, Totalizator or Nafta Pol- ska, in the years 2004-2008 presidents and board members were changed do- zens times and that this does not help to develop these companies in the proper di- rection but, on the other hand, Bank PKO BP, grew much stronger than other banks in which such changes did not take place. What, therefore, propels companies’ de- velopment? Is it only the form of ownership or maybe, primarily, knowledgeable experts? he asked.
