The second decade of 21st century finds the world economy in a global crisis and huge uncertainty as to the shaping of the nearest future. At the same time, the progressing globalization processes imply fast spread of crisis phenomena occurring on local or regional markets. The presented macro-economic diagnosis directly translates into real threats for the proper functioning of contemporary economic organizations. With no big risk, we can also claim that at the moment, the hitherto prevailing experiences and previously proven solutions are mostly invalid. In economy, there is still the atmosphere of uncertainty as to the shaping of the nearest future, thus, it is necessary to undertake a broad scope of remedial actions in order to improve the present situation and prevent similar phenomena in the future. The task seems to be extremely difficult, considering the fact that crises constitute an unavoidable element of the economy functioning, and despite their regularity, attempts to anticipate crises are doomed to fail, and the role of contemporary management is only to search for ways out of the situations occurred as their consequence.

For this reason, an ambition of this year’s conference will be to face the challenges resulting from the current economic reality, both within the scope of anticipating threats, a comprehensive diagnosis of the situation, as well as defining optimum solutions in the sphere of managing, formulating and implementing strategies, and analyzing the effects achieved. Moreover, taking into account constantly progressing power of global links, which was also very strongly revealed during the latest events, the conference, due to its international and pragmatic character, will ensure a possibility to confront Polish experiences with the experiences of the representatives of other countries in the area of science and economic practice.
