The significant influence of not only traditional resources – human, financial, but also immaterial resources such as available employees’ knowledge is noticeable more often on the results of an organization. Only appropriately controlling all resources, and in particular, educating the employees and enhancing knowledge resources the competitive ability may be retained.
