In the current period of dynamic economic development and a great number of diverse companies in operation, it seems important to define the characteristics of an entrepreneur that enable him or her not only to survive, but also to develop and become successful.

Competences are the subject of research within several domains of social science: psychology, management, law, sociology and organizational theory. The competences associated with company management can be defined as those characteristics which favor the successful management of a small and medium company. Both types of competences - general and specific - are personal characteristics, which are possible to change and modify, for example through training. They can reach different levels for different people and also for the same employee in different moments in time.

Nowadays it seems that new challenge is not only the competence management but also the talent management. Talent has become the key factor of production and regions develop advantages based on their ability to quickly mobilize the best people, resources, and capabilities required to turn innovations into new business ideas and commercial products. Qualities and ambitions as motor for the future.
