EN Organising is one of the management functions. Without organisational performance, we cannot undertake the realisation of planned intentions. A well-prepared work system operates on a performer in a motivating way and it stimulates correct task execution, for example, production tasks. Organisational studies have their origins on the turn of the 19th and 20th century. From the authors’ viewpoint, organisational principles still should be used and implemented equally with modern approaches to management. In the article, the authors remind ground rules based on praxeological “striving for a good job performance”, correlating them with a modern idea, which is implemented in Poland’s Eastern Neighbours called “Industry 4.0”, and research conducted in one of the biggest production companies in Greater Poland [in Polish: Wielkopolska, a region of west-central Poland], indicating a need for paying a constant attention to organising processes and production systems.
