Innovative Management Development in the Automotive Supply Industry
In a globalised world, enterprises are confronted with an increasingly fast change of technical and technological possibilities, available knowledge and differentiated markets. In this environment innovation and/or the ability to innovate are the key for success. Innovation is regarded as a major source for a competitive advantage of an organisation. The following practical example should show how a medium-sized family business dared to organise itself in such a way that it could maintain innovative drive while anticipating and weathering crises, and thereby set itself up for success into the future. In this context, we focussed on the specific role of the management development. The truly innovative feature of this management development approach is the way in which reflection is given a structural anchor within the process as it relates to the management level and management development. Basing points are small events, strategy, structure, people and communication. This papers shows that it is necessary to create a routine for permanent re-assessment of the innovation process.
