Socio-economic development after 1989 in Poland may be regarded as a standard for the transformation of a centrally planned economy to a free-market economy. After 25 years of transition and nearly 10 years of activity in the structures of the European Union, we should consider the challenges posed by the modern global economy. These relate to a number of dimensions: cultural, political, economic, etc. The presentation is focused on the following issues:

  1. The development of mobile capital market and the resulting increase in competition between economic systems.
  2. The growing importance of the activity of the institutions responsible for socio-economic development of the system affects the need to improve the quality of management.
  3. Modern public administration institutions must increase the efficiency of activity for example through organizational innovation (introduction of new management methods).

Relating to the structure of the above issues is as follows:

  1. Issue of social and economic development in regional and local level
  2. Development processes – factors and problems

Strategic management of development processes – key challenges in Poland
