Identifying opportunities and risks at an early stage, assessing them correctly and making appropriate decisions at the right time – in today's world, companies can only succeed if they have an up-to-date and transparent information base at their disposal on an ongoing basis and understand what implications arise from this information.
Examples from the past show the consequences of wasted technological opportunities: mobile phone providers who missed the trend towards smartphones, camera manufacturers who underestimated digitalization, and mail order companies who integrated online retailing into their business model too late all have disappeared from the market.
Systematic early recognition and targeted development and expansion of competencies are indispensable for a lasting know-how advantage. Only if companies succeed in identifying and accurately analyzing the existing competencies within the company can they deploy their resources in a targeted manner.
