Page: 7Education and entrepreneurial spiritThe attitude of a man is influenced by the quality of education. Too often we use to exclusively impute to the system the educational problems of individuals and groups. It is necessary to look lucidly and toidentify the role of family, civil society and individuals in education. Exercising leadership means continuously learning and, therefore, it is difficult to separate the educational dynamics from the team evolution at organizational level. The training of individuals occurs in variable contexts that they create or in which they are involved.From the leadership perspective, education is also a problem of assuming…
Introduction. Comparative management studies (parochial, ethnocentric, polycentric comparative, geocentric) allow us to define the scope of investigation starting from specific cultures, the similarities and differences between various cultures, from investigating multinational corporations, thus establishing the meaning of the evolution of management in the globalization era.
Aim of the study. Through this analysis we intend to briefly present some of the common elements of management in each country and, at the same time, to point out some of the notable differences. Within our analysis, we consider some peculiarities of the specific management models of enterprises in the United States, Germany, Great Britain, France and Spain. In this regard, we shall use, inter alia, Geert Hofstede’s model regarding the cultural dimensions in management (individualism / collectivism, certainty / uncertainty, masculinity / femininity, high power distance / low power distance).

Introduction. The process of explaining the political factors will never be able to replace the realities and that is the reason why we propose to have, on an European level, an analysis of the way in which the economic discrepancies deepen the educational ones thus creating a spiral of disparities within all areas. It is obvious that we cannot only conclude that certain policies have been bankrupt, but to seek and find solutions for the future. The demographic deficit in the Eastern European countries has created even bigger problems in the educational field favouring the emergence of some problems in pension systems also, but in the systems of distributing the revenues as well.
Aim of the study. In this article we intend to do a review of the main issues faced by the higher education in Eastern Europe, the causes which generate these problems, but also the economic, social, political and cultural effects on the level of those countries, but also on international level.

Management and „virtual reality”
When we talk about the configuration of forthcoming times, it is impossible to ignore the tight connection existing between the organisational management and the development of the future economies. The economic growth imposes qualitative, quantitative as well structural related changes, but the multidisciplinary feature of management makes us see reality from the perspective of eco-management, as the survival dimensions seem to be directly dependent on the balancing of the value generating activities with the value destroying activities.
Introduction. Leadership has become a major topic in various domains such as sociology, political science, psychology, history, management or business for several decades and has spawned a huge number of empirical and conceptual researches. Today’s challenging and turbulent times require more than ever authentic and strong leaders both at the micro and macro level.
Aim of the study. The aims of the paper are to briefly define the concepts of leadership and leader, and to present the case of Carlos Ghosn, the chairman and chief executive officer of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Since the beginning of his professional career, Ghosn has proved to be a leader par excellence. Our research is based on a literature review.

Introduction. Talent management could be defined currently as ,,all the systems and processes that enable a company to attract, develop and retain employees with highly qualified” but given different interpretations we observe that ,,talent management” has a different meaning for each company. Some organizations aim to manage talent throughout the company, while others are just managing employees with high potential.
Aim of the study. This paper aims to highlight that talent management is applied differently from one organization to another depending on the type and stage of development where they are. Approaches to this subject differ so greatly from one company to another, that a process for some is “nice to have”, and for others it is a process having a significant impact in business. Yet top companies have created worldwide selection networks through which talented peopleare recruited to be hired within such (Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Samsung, etc.). The budgets meant for identifying people with high potential are especially generous and therefore these companies have long-term collaboration with universities in various countries. It is true that talented people have a few areas in wich they excel and companies need to support them to develop these skills/competencies but at the same time, they have to ,,cultivate’’ also their social skills in order to integrate into organization and thus to help them but also the organization to develop harmoniously and be permanently competitive.

From past to future
When analysing the evolution of management, the past times can be seen as certitude, while the future ones can be discussed in terms of work hypotheses. Scenarios have the great virtue of providing unlimited possibilities to treat future realities. We can talk about virtual realities as forms of manifestation of future contexts. If, by the end of the 19th century, we were talking about Fayol’s theories, nowadays we have the possibility to analyse such theories from the perspective of their validation within the real economy. It is obvious that the critical analysis is at hand rather than the construction of a system architecture able to reveal, in terms of reflection and experiments (with successes and failures), the evolution of miscellaneous phenomena.
Introduction. Management has become a subject of major interest in different domains such as political science, history, psychology, sociology or business for centuries and led to numerous researches. As a concept, science, discipline, philosophy and practice, management aims at achieving both efficiency and effectiveness. To survive and prosper in today’s highly competitive business world companies need to be managed in a creative way.
Aim of the study. The aims of the paper are to define the concepts of management and creativity, and to present the case of Honda, one of the most innovative companies around the world. The research is based on a case study.

Introduction. Intensive learning methods, collecting significant information from case studies generate value and powerful business solutions. Facing avant-garde competitors and the real improvement of internal processes represent the stakes of high-performance companies. Opportunities also mean taking risks that make the difference between conventional solutions and unconventional solutions. In such circumstances, the differences are also achieved by the quality of the evaluation and the selection of team members.
Aim of the study. The paper aims to briefly present the relation between creativity and innovation and the ways in which a modern management can favourably influence the employees’ attitude in various contexts so that they are creative and, at the same time, finishers. We can mark out the fact that the management of a company can design intensive learning methods and facilitate the exchange of ideas in order to increase the speed of innovation in business.

Creativity, Invention and Innovation – Catalysts of a Perfect Management
Lately, in the academic environment, as well as among management consultants and managers, the issue of management innovation is increasingly arising. It is considered that innovation in management has the unique advantage of making key changes in terms of competitiveness by implementing practices, structures, techniques, or processes that can facilitate the achievement of the organizational objectives. This can help create favourable conditions at the organizational level for building a favourable climate where creativity, innovation and inventiveness can become important factors of organizational performance by creating competitive products and services.
