What should your company look like in the future and how do you ensure its competitiveness? With active corporate development, you systematically address these questions about the future.

The new year 2021 is already a few days old and it has begun as the old year 2020 ended: challenging, exciting and full of work!

This applies not only to the projects with our customers, who unfortunately have a lot to do with the current Corona situation, but by far not only.

THE MAK’ED TEAM continues to grow and so we moved into new premises in Nuremberg and expanded our premises in Karlsruhe to create space for our new and future colleagues. At both locations, we have work, meeting, creative, retreat, discussion and reflection places where we can work on our customer projects as well as on our own topics, when we are not acting from the home office..

Again and again, one reads that institutions, their managers and employees need to be able to react flexibly to today’s rapidly changing environment in order to remain competitive. And this is actually what flexibility is all about. It’s the ability to move quickly and easily. The better you know yourself, the easier it is to be flexible. For companies, this means that they must be able to react to and deal with unforeseen events quickly –  if this seems necessary or is deliberately wanted.

In recent months, we have been following a company where we have been impressed by how engaged the company’s CEO is, how he blogged and posted on internal social media every day. Every day you could see where he was going, what topics concerned him, and what was going through his head. In addition, he posted articles from various media channels about the topics of leadership, management, corporate culture, change management, and work – most of these set in the context of his own company.
