We want to use an external perspective through the competition to become even better. And exactly this sporty ambition characterized the participants and especially the finalists and winners. Participants in competitions thinking about winning (award, insights and experiences), while other companies think the time spent or the associated costs. Here is the difference that makes the difference, the thinking and acting. So is always fascinating to experience it, how successful companies, in the so-called difficult times not only to survive, but to expand the success of rather by new ideas against the trend. This year successful medium-sized companies have again outstanding successes. Printers are not talking for years from over-capacity, but expand sales and profit after many years in a row. Carpenters build sales and earnings by 20% through innovation and a successful niche policy.
Salons expand through a successful branch concept, while other salons outstanding education, new ideas for the store design and national and international competitions winning further expanded its position as a premium brand. TV set manufacturers also successfully positioned in the premium segment. What do these companies, except to think differently and act differently? You have a higher claim than the average on himself, to their employees, their suppliers on their own merits and opportunities for customers. After many corporate analyses, we found no company that was exceptionally successful by accident. Always put methodical thinking and acting behind the success and sometimes the luck helped to somewhat the brave.
Right here We also notice how useful are the criteria of the Oskar-Patzelt-Foundation for the competition.
