Abstract

The publications concern business competencies, organizational ethics, job, and life satisfaction among IT professionals, as well as models of relations between these factors in information and IT systems. The results contributed to the development of science in the field of psycho-social aspects of innovation, organizational potential, and organizational ethics. It focused on micro and small enterprises. The Author studied these selected issues on the example of Polish, German and Indian companies. The Author's contribution is part of a stream of research on human capital, as well as non-material dimensions of motivation systems, such as job satisfaction, belief in the quality of life, work-life balance. Important dimensions of the conducted research were also considerations in the field of intellectual capital, in particular on the predispositions to make innovations, ethical competences, or the ability to communicate and theory of mind. These aspects were examined taking into account the IT dimension and competence to use IT systems.

The series of publications contribute to the development of research methods, because Jolanta presented her approach based on passive experiments, proposing methods for selecting the sample and verifying its representativeness. The concepts developed were included in the work, which also resulted in computer software. They also make a very useful contribution to the development of those qualitative methods where the concept of representativeness is used and applied.

Although, of course, it is difficult to assume that the presented research exhausts the topic, the author was able to make reliable considerations and analyze these important issues.
