Continuous changes in the every business organization environment tend to seek new solutions in the field of improvement of professional personnel at all levels of the organization, both in the management and professional duties performance by individual employees on operational levels. Experience, knowledge and continuous professional development of each employee, cause that the sum of the individuals achievements affects the growth condition of the company and increase its competitiveness. However, the quality of acquired knowledge is the basis of the objectives of the enterprise, which depends not only on the efficient use of data and information resources, but also on the people knowledge, because the real statement is that knowledge enriches the knowledge. It is necessary to look for opportunities to facilitate and speed up the process by applying the latest methods of supporting and complementary abilities, intelligence and knowledge workers.
Today, company
s structure should be determined by its context, and designed to include both, enterprises material and knowledge resources. Should strive to effectively acquire knowledge and its continuous renewal, because knowledge, which has not been used to a greater extent than machinery and equipment, has been losing its value. Therefore, it is necessary to apply such methods of teaching and learning, that intellectual capital should contribute to the growth efficiency of any national organization, which in turn contributes to a faster achievement of the objectives, and thereby enhance competitiveness at international level.
Young, recruited workers have a certain amount of knowledge, acquired during their studies and practices, they are full of enthusiasm and dedication to the company until they see the opportunity to develop their capabilities and knowledge deepening, and thus the usefulness and gaining higher positions, which also involves higher salaries. A more ambitious attempt, by their selves, on a regular basis, complement the knowledge and experience, based on innate abilities and acquired instilled learning methods. But if they really have the ability to use modern methods of learning, or rather, in most cases, they use their innate abilities and memory. And yet, there are many methods of raising knowledge, using the latest scientific and technological achievements in this field. It should be asked whether they are used and disseminated on a daily basis, starting from kindergarten and ending on expanding knowledge in organizations. The conducted research in this area has shown, however, that traditional teaching methods are still dominant.

Education is a lifelong process, subject to permanent change and cannot be separated from the dynamic changes, taking place in the modern world. Modern education should rely on a constant search for new ideas, methods and tools of education at all levels, and take into account the processes of globalization, demographic change, should take also into account the emergence of new manufacturing technologies, processes and technologies of ICT transformation taking place in the labor markets, adapt the educational structure to employment structures and pursue lifelong learning. Future education is also the individualization and personalization of learning, raising education awareness, and practical skills for the labor market.
The changing nature of competing enterprises, makes growing importance of the ability to apply the acquired knowledge, employee
s creativity, capability and adaptation to dynamic changes in contemporary reality. So that polish education has the characteristics of modern education and continuing, it is needed to seek new teaching methods, supporting them with modern scientific achievements, in the form of tools and resources, to achieve the stated objectives, namely to prepare the young generation to consciously choose an occupation and possible amendment, which takes place more often. Generally speaking, the education of future professional personnel, should be consistent with the expectations of students and employers.
Overview of research, carried out so far by specialists and experts in the field of teaching and analysis of the research questionnaire, relating to the present methods of teaching students of the Faculty of Management, in logistics studies, proved that in spite of the existence and the continuous emergence of modern tools and teaching aids, giving methods dominate on 60% of all teaching classes. All the respondents expect a real professional practice and more practice exercises and laboratory classes with the possibility to use the modern teaching aids.
This situation is caused by lack of ingenuity among teachers, and their willingness to find common points between programming content and the student needs. The teacher should act as a mediator, which eliminates all kinds of discrepancies between the use of a variety of teaching methods, the knowledge contained in the literature and student expectations. Unfavorable to education is a rigid application of the uniform teaching methods and traditional ways of teaching. We need educators with the vision and passion, who have no regard for the time of preparation classes, are innovative, creative, changing their mindset, habits and traditions, adapting to rapidly changing environment.
