The monograph presents a collection of papers intended to disseminate new knowledge and skills to practitioners, based on the research work of master level students of the 26th generation of the Management and Organization (IMB) program with mentors, members of the research program, as part of the study of innovation management at the level of countries, industries and companies. In cooperation with the Slovenian State Holding (SDH), a survey was conducted in the largest Slovenian companies. The monograph was presented at the 21st Portorož Business Conference, which traditionally represents the meeting point of the business and academic public and economic policy makers and attracts more than 500 decision-makers to Portorož. The research itself aroused a lot of interest, and according to the director, the Slovenian State Holding (SDH) will use the findings in the management of state-owned companies. The monograph presents a set of policies of the most successful countries in the field of innovation, it also presents the key factors that separate the most successful companies from their followers and is from this point of view also interesting for the company's management. The year before, the group had established itself with a similar series of projects on the topic of shaping the future through e-commerce: DOMADENIK, Polona (urednik), KOMAN, Matjaž (urednik), REDEK, Tjaša (urednik). Shaping the future : opportunities and challenges of e-commerce. 1st printing. Ljubljana: Časnik Finance, 2018. 248 str.. ISBN 978-961-6541-58-9. [COBISS.SI-ID 297252608]

The article presents the movement of productivity in Slovenian companies and identifies key factors that would influence the increase of productivity of Slovenian companies.

The article represents important work in the action plan of measures to increase the productivity of Slovenian companies.

AGENTA data explorer is a tool for obtaining data calculated by researchers in the European FP7 project for EU Member States at the end of 2017. It is a methodology of National Transfer Accounts (NTA), which distributes GDP by age, and the results are used to analyse the economic effects of population aging. In 2018 and beyond, the intensive use of this data followed, as indicated by numerous citations from the data researcher. Jože Sambt is a member of the government's Aging Group, which works with the European Commission on long-term projections of age-related expenditure. He also participates in the preparation of a series of reports "Aging report", which are published every three years. The last one is from 2018 (“Aging report 2018”), where the model he developed is used in projections of general government pension expenditures for Slovenia. The results from "White Books of Slovenian Demography" were also published by Tanja Istenič and Jože Sambt in an article in "Changing patterns of transfers in Slovenia in the last three decades: transition from a socialist economy to a market economy." Post-communist economies, ISSN 1463-1377, 2019, vol. 31, iss. 5, p. 579-602. Findings from ISTENIČ, Tanja & SAMBT, Jože. We live longer! : are we able to support ourselves for a longer period of time ?. Economic and business review, ISSN 1580-0466, 2019, vol. 21, pos. no., p. 57-62. [COBISS.SI-ID 25194470], are used in the IMAD Report: Economic Challenges 2019. Namely, the authors present solutions for dealing with the issue of domestic labor supply (i.e. faster entry into the labor market faster, later retirement).

It is a concrete form of imparting new knowledge to direct users. Adriana Rejc Buhovac prepared a workshop for the national program SPIRIT on the topic of sustainable strategic transformation of business operations. She also had an interview on this topic (REJC BUHOVAC, Adriana (interviewee) Successful companies integrate all aspects of sustainable development into business processes. Delo, ISSN 0350-7521. [Printed ed.], 12 Sep 2019, year 61, no. . 210, p. 10, illustr. [COBISS.SI-ID 25258726]) and an invited lecture within CSR Europe in Brussels (REJC BUHOVAC, Adriana, HELLER, Christian. Social impact assessment: challenges and existing models. Brussels: CSR Europe , 2019. https://www.csreurope.org/social-impact-assessment-challenges-and-existing-models-0#.XG1ZT-QUl9A. [COBISS.SI-ID 24984806]). She and her co-authors also prepared a manual (REJC BUHOVAC Adriana, HREN, Alenka, FINK, Tatjana, SAVIČ, Nenad: Sustainable business strategies and sustainable business models in Slovenian practice. 1st edition. Ljubljana: Spirit Slovenia, public agency, 2018. 77 p. tables, graphs. ISBN 978-961-92668-8-5. [COBISS.SI-ID 24411110]). Among the results for the professional public is an article on the topic of including quality disclosures on sustainable performance in annual reports (REJC BUHOVAC, Adriana. How to include quality disclosures on sustainable performance in the annual report? = Sustainability information in annual reports. In: BERGANT, Živko (Ed.). Proceedings, 4th Business Analysis Conference, Ljubljana, June 6, 2018, (Business Accounting, ISSN 1855-4032, Vol. 11, No. 2, June 2018). Ljubljana: Institute of Business Accounting: High School of Accounting and Finance. 2018, Vol. 11, No. 2, pp. 5-17, illustr. [COBISS.SI-ID 24540646]). She also chaired a high-profile round table on sustainable and responsible consumption (SLABE ERKER, Renata, MUROVEC, Nika, GOLOB, Urša, KOS KOKLIČ, Mateja, ŽABKAR, Vesna, REJC BUHOVAC, Adriana.

The presentation at the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology is based on an extensive survey among Slovenian companies. The results show that Slovenian companies are introducing more intensively simpler technologies (smart mobile devices, work in the cloud), followed by CRM and ERP technologies, and quite a few (around 30% of respondents) are also introducing elements of robotics and smart factories. Companies are expecting benefits especially in terms of increasing traceability, creating new business models, increasing quality, increased flexibility, lower administrative and other burdens and adapting products to customer needs, which is also in line with findings from other countries. The main perceived barriers are the lack of qualified staff and suitable competences, lack of finances, inadequate infrastructure, and equipment. The human factor stands out, which is similar to the global Stanton Chase (2017) results. For small and medium-sized enterprises, financial constraints and infrastructure are more important. Larger companies are more successful, as well as those that are more involved in global value chains, which also invest more in intangible capital. The state must adequately support companies in investing in human resources development and lifelong learning, in raising awareness of the importance of I4 for maintaining competitiveness, develop infrastructure and offer appropriate co-financing according to the needs of specific groups. The results are important for representatives of Slovenian companies as well as for representatives of the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, how to encourage the development of I4.0 in Slovenia.
