Our new book enters the book market on November 13, 2021

In this SEViX reference book, you will find not so much library knowledge, but the authors' experiential knowledge of how decision-makers can manage corporate crises with success.

This specialist book shows how corporate crises can be solved sustainably and successfully through strategic transformation, the core element of which is strategy development. The authors address the decision-makers in the companies and present tried-and-tested solution approaches that go far beyond the previously known approaches and methods of classic restructuring. Strategic transformation follows a holistic approach with stakeholder participation. In contrast to classic approaches, it aims to achieve a long-term profitable market positioning for the company that is better than the industry average. Proven methods of market and company analysis, communication and employee involvement, best practice approaches, project management and the use of multipliers and promoters are effective in achieving this. Resilient business models and diversification strategies are essential to ensure that companies continue to operate profitably in shrinking industries and markets.
