The aim is to consider the influences of management attitudes on organizational culture and its influence on occupational safety. The sample consisted of 801 examinees from 69 companies, 11 industries. We used a quantity research method, a questionnaire. For data and information analysis we used the softer program SPSS, as well as appropriate descriptive statistic methods, a factor analysis, a linear regressive analysis.

The purpose of our research is to examine the state of innovation policy and its influence on the successfulness of micro and small companies in the Republic of Slovenia. The effects of particular influential variables on the success and innovation policy (frequency of introduced changes, national co-financing, financial support initiatives, promote programs and innovation planning policy) were analysed empirically on the stratified model of 121 micro and small companies with the method of quantitative research, namely as per the most important and successful statistical regions. On the basis of the analysis based on linear and multiple regression analysis, it may be established that innovation policy influences positively on the success of micro and small companies. We can thus conclude that companyŽs frequency of introduced changes; national co-financing and financial support incentives, familiarity of employees with the innovation strategy as a part of innovation policy play a significant part in achieving business excellence.

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to investigate organisational evolutionand change forces that influence the adaptation process. Despite significant research interest in this topic, the knowledge is still incomplete. Design/methodology/approach - The paper examines the importance of organisational evolution and introduces two frameworks, five change forces and success factors and competencies, in the process of transformation from the new economy to the innovative economy. Findings - The paper finds that organisational capacity for transformation in response to the economic change forces has become the critical success factor in the ever-changing business environment where more competition means more intense selection. As organisations fight to remain on the market, unadaptive and consequently unsuccessful rivals fail to capture an adequate market share and have to exit. Research limitations/implications - It would be particularly interesting to conduct studies in different countries to see whether the results are affected by the cultural context. Practical implications - In today's knowledge-based economy, different resources are used in creating new value and a broader circle of participants is involved than in the past. Human capital is becoming more important than economic capital. Originality/value - The paper contributes to the discussion on adaptive evolution of organisations and emphasizes which economic forces have impact on organisations in an era of innovative economy.
