“The SME Challenge is the ideal way to hold a mirror up to yourself and your company. Is your business model still viable? Do you have the right focus? Are you selling your services properly? Everything that seems self-evident is challenged and questioned. Thanks to this programme, we learned to aim higher with our company, and we succeeded in making the right decisions. The programme gave us a critical sounding-board and access to theoretical insights. The other participants were also a great enrichment: new, sustainable contacts that have grown into partnerships for exciting and innovative projects. Highly recommended for every SME that wants to grow and deliver the best of itself!”

By nature, we don’t tend to lie awake at night thinking about profit, growth, optimisation processes… I found the perspective of people who do just that fascinating. It also gave me the insight that it’s not wrong to think that way, either.”

“The programme provided the guidelines I needed. The theoretical framework gave me a language to manage the financial, more operational side of the agency. Among other things, the coaching process generated the business plan which we are currently using. These tools gave me a clear overview of the firm and allowed me to think along with the others about the future.”

  1. The dos and don'ts of business planning

    When you consider pursuing a new business opportunity, it makes sense to assess the opportunity in a systematic way (rather than purely relying on gut feel). A business plan helps you structure your analyses and present them in a way to help others understand your plan – and hopefully agree with you.
  2. Do family firms pay more attention to CSR?

    There is an ongoing debate in academia about whether family firms are more socially responsible than others. So far, research has not been conclusive. In order to further the discussion, professor Kerstin Fehre, together with a colleague from the Institute of Management at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, rephrased the question: “Does the management of family firms pay more attention to corporate social responsibility (CSR)?”
