Today’s business influences the (financial) scope of your future business. By fundamentally optimizing and restructuring your current business and your organization (e.g. through M&A activities), you secure its future viability. Being aware of the need for transformation, even with current successes, is a prerequisite for your continued success.
Social, political, economic, environmental and technological trends and disruptive upheavals have profound effects on markets, customer behavior, business models and production conditions. Change is the "new normal" for many companies.
Examples of such upheavals include:
- Climate change and sustainability
- Digitalization and new technologies
- New value-added and business models
- Blurring industry boundaries and new competitors
- Rising employee expectations and new work
The strategic, structural, and cultural adaptability of your company and your employees is the decisive factor in securing your own financial prosperity and competitiveness today and in the future. This requires a holistic view of the company and a plan for fundamental renewal. We call this Corporate Transformation.
HORVÁTH point of view
Transform today to succeed tomorrow
In times of disruptive change in almost all markets, corporate transformation is becoming the supreme discipline for CxOs. Individual projects are being replaced by the forward-looking, holistic restructuring of your company. Corporate transformation thus goes far beyond incremental changes and prepares your company holistically for future challenges - even if, from a results perspective, there seems to be no need for it today.
We know from our experience: For such dynamic and cross-functional transformations, three strategic imperatives should guide the CxO's actions.

KG), Dr. Harald Marquardt (CEO of the Marquardt Group) and Dr. Niels Pörksen (CEO of Südzucker AG), give us insights into the transformations of their companies.
