Sustainable strategic management: the case of Poland
This paper reviews sustainable strategic management (SSM) activities and examines how one nation has changed and performed within the framework of SSM principles. The problem is that relationships between market structures and environmental sustainability are dynamic. This case study uses Poland to illustrate some of the problems in conducting national policy. Since moving to a freemarket, Poland enjoyed significant economic advances, but now faces a number of challenges to manage rapid economic growth while ensuring environmental and social stability. This study reviews some of the factors and elements of concern to policymakers, managers, and social scientists.
