AUDIT AS A METHOD FOR STIMULATING AUTONOMY AND CREATIVITY IN A COMPANY

M. Stasiak

The Academy of Humanities and Economics in Lodz (POLAND)
A person or an organization which have the opportunity to act freely is the source of innovation. An organization perceived as an autonomous subject is able to change its pattern of behaviour and act in a different, new way, a way that will allow the subject to act more effectively than before. If one decides to increase the level of innovation in the company, one should establish departments that have internal autonomy in the company. Internal autonomy means the right to change one’s pattern of behaviour on the grounds of its own decision, ergo it’s a way of searching new, more effective patterns of behavior and solutions.
This paper is a description of functioning of academy, in which departments have well defined scopes of freedom and responsibility. The procedure allowing to have an insight into dispositions of such a department is called an audit. However, is should be stressed, that is not the aim of that procedure to check whether the department acts in accordance with standards. The real use and purpose of an audit is (1) to get insight into the right of freedom and autonomous decisions of the department and (2) an insight into the employees’s awareness of those rights and their ability to use it. This article will present requirements and stages used in the audit. The described model of functioning of the academy brings positive effects, effects that are beyond measure.
