Throughout the entire period of introducing the socia list economy in Poland (and in the other socialist countries as well) the concept of entrepreneurship has not been very popular, with the term "entrepreneur" being trated as ideologically alien . Centralization of the entire management of the economy and dependence of directors on sanctions and privileges meted out by their superior organs had led to suppression of entrepreneurship in the Polish economy. It was not until the eighties that the issue of entrep reneurship and its determinants in the economy began to be rediscovered. This article referring to the Polish conditions is focussed on entrepreneurship as a behaviour of economic units. On the other hand, it does not encompass the sphere of "private" entrepreneurship referring to the sphere of consumption and being rather of resourcefulness type. In the second part of the article , the author points out directions of far-reaching changes in the management system of economy indispensable for expanding entrepreneurship of public enterprises. Adecisive role has been a ttributed to external factors (system of management and planning in the economy, system of financing, system of control and evaluation of enterprises and their management personnel). The author has also analyzed internal factors in enterprises (and especially large enterprises) and pointed out indispensable directions of changes in this field.
