Megatrends

Megatrends are not just a modern phenomenon, but a lifelong reality that occurs with or without human intervention. The Management Institut für den Mittelstand (MIM) assists companies in strategic identification and use of customer-relevant megatrends.

Companies who understand how megatrends develop and what the potential consequences are, are in a good position to develop measures and transform potential risks into opportunities.

MIM helps its clients to assess megatrends that are relevant to their corporate strategy and to take appropriate action to gain best advantage from them. In addition, MIM reinforces its customers' ability to deal with changes in their business sector constructively and on an ongoing basis.

>> MIM Competence Partner: Dr. Andreas Rauh // Dr. Rainer Wessel

Succession planning and business continuity

The business continuity of medium-sized companies is increasingly under threat from imminent generational change. The risk arises not only from the limited availability of potential successors. Most companies are also facing the need for profound corporate organisational change. If this change is not successful, the company’s future is at risk.

The Management Institut für den Mittelstand (MIM) accompanies such changes and, by establishing business processes, structures and responsibilities, creates the necessary prerequisites for future entrepreneurial success.

MIM guarantees business continuity by providing experienced interim managers to fill temporary vacancies in executive positions.

>> MIM Competence Partner: Dr. Andreas Rauh

Knowledge management

Knowledge is the number one factor of production and competitiveness. No company can afford to do without the know-how and expertise present in the minds of its own employees. Quite the contrary! The increasing shortage of skilled workers makes well-trained experts highly attractive to competitors and their potential departure is a real business risk.

The Management Institut für den Mittelstand (MIM) helps operationalise, secure and manage company-relevant know-how and protect companies against permanent knowledge loss.

We are happy to discuss in detail with you the direct and indirect knowledge in your organisation. We are well aware that the risk of know-how loss increases as work processes are better defined and whenever employees are given more independence to carry out specific tasks.
