Managerial corruption – anyone could fall victim 

Recently, the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau (CBA) pointed out that 23 February is Nationwide Bribe-Free Day. Corruption is one of the biggest threats to the economy, and hampers economic growth, disrupts business, and decreases society’s income. Corruption is usually associated with the taking of a bribe by a public official, and these are the scandals that attract attention. Meanwhile, corruption in business draws less attention, and this is unfortunate.

Revolution on the broadcasting market in Poland

Politicians in government circles have recently proposed a bill amending the Broadcasting Act, dubbed publicly the  “Lex Pilot”. The reason for this is that the Polish government wishes to decide by itself, and impose without consulting market players, the positioning of certain channels on the EPG in each television operator. Interestingly, the channels given priority would be solely the channels of the public (state) broadcaster  (TVP).

Problems with conducting IT projects using the agile approach

Computer system implementation using the agile methodology was intended to remedy the problems typically experienced with projects conducted using the waterfall approach, where the time and costs of implementation are ill-judged, often making it necessary to repeatedly conclude annexes to an agreement or litigate with regard to the scope of work assigned and late delivery.

Legislative developments making it easier for foreigners to register companies in Poland

An act took effect on 15 December 2022[1] making it considerably easier for foreigners to launch business operations in Poland in the form of a commercial company[2]. Under the act, foreigners will no longer be required to have a personal civil identification number (PESEL) to register a company in the register of business entities of the National Court Register. In addition, the Minister of Justice is required to provide templates in the online Public Information Bulletin for the articles of association of commercial companies registered online, in Polish and also in a language that can be understood by as many foreign language speakers as possible.
