Wachstum lernen - lernend wachsen

Neue Perspektiven für klein- und mittelständische Unternehmen

The research project and its goals

“Wachstum lernen – lernend wachsen”(Learning to grow), under this motto a concept to support growing, innovative small and medium-sized companies will be developed and tested in the next three years. Growth processes create new demands on human resources management as well as on the development of the organization and innovation processes.

The intended action research project aims at

  • identifying the constraints and drivers of growth of innovative SME and at
  • improving their innovative- and competitive position through a targeted development of their potentials.

For this purpose a new consulting- and assistance concept will be realized. It is based on principles of project learning and places emphasis on mutual knowledge transfer of companies and RKW-consultants in a network approach. The project will be implemented in the three economic areas Berlin-Brandenburg, Baden-Württemberg and Saxony. This enables a bundling of regional potentials and a comprehensive, nationwide transfer of knowledge.
