Abstract

Nowadays, attempts to promote innovative and entrepreneurial behaviours are more and more common in the public sector. In order to improve organisational procedures as well as to enhance financial management of health care units, especially in terms of effectiveness and economic efficiency, it is advisable for managers to be more entrepreneurial. In the era of constant changes and increasing competition, also in the health sector, attempts to implement and improve management tools are fully justified. In this paper, the authors refer to the new concept of competitiveness and entrepreneurial concept of competitiveness, as well as focus on its assessment and measurement within the entrepreneurial orientation in the public sector. The authors also discuss the research on the impact of entrepreneurial orientation on performance management, which also provides an introduction to the broader research in the field of public entrepreneurship.
