Summary/Abstract: The issue of restructuring public enterprises is extremely topical today due to their enormous size while actual material possibilities for their overcoming are relatively small. The restructuring process is currently underway but it does not take place at an appropriate pace and speed since it is accompanied by significant problems, and the state (i.e. the government) is expected to take an action, and so far it has been inert and ineffective. This slow pace of restructuring is especially true in the case of the Serbian Railways Public Company, which represents a very significant traffic infrastructure system, not only from the standpoint of Serbian, but also from the standpoint of European and global needs and interests. In this article we try to point out the major difficulties and problems of restructuring Serbian Railways, and especially those predominantly connected to material and human resources, but also the inadequate conception of macro and micro organizations with simultaneous indications to the approaches and possibilities for overcoming them, particularly those indicated by the theory and practice of modern management.
