Abstract

Many formerly communist European countries have experienced dramatic economic change, ultimately affecting the manner in which companies in these areas are owned and managed. Many of these regions "have undertaken a transformation from a communist economic system to a capitalistic market economy. As part of this transformation, individuals and businesses have not only become owners of private property, but also have become increasingly responsible for their own financial well being" (Cooper & Dorfman 2003: 381). Poland in particular has benefited from these transitions, and entrepreneurship/business development is further improving the country’s economy (Arendarski et al. 1994, Dickinson 2000, Godkin et al. 2000, Bliss & Garratt 2001). According to Miller (2000: 586), a key component of "Poland’s economic transition strategy has been the development of a strong small- and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector."
