In the third issue of CEBR, we touch on diverse business topics. In the fi rst research paper, Dr. Mariola Laguna and her colleagues discuss how managerial competencies relate to the business success of small- and mediumsized enterprises. The second research paper is a case study in which Dr. Jaroslav Halík applies the PEST analysis to a logistics service company based on EBRD and IBRD methodology. The next paper, written by
Martin Machek, analyzes the trends and development of the retailing sector in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. The fourth paper, written by Dr. Mariola Ciszewska-Mlinarič and her colleagues, is devoted to the question of how relational capabilities infl uence the fi nancial and non-fi nancial performance of SMEs. The next paper, written by Květa Olšanová, examines the growing potential of the aging population from the perspective of the food industry. The fi nal research paper, written by Dr. Petr Jirsák and Dr. Petr Kolář, provides a literature review on customer orientation in containerized freight distribution and logistics.
