The disruption of one's own business model opens up many new opportunities and perspectives. To achieve this, companies must take on vital responsibility and react openly to changes. This is not possible with 'business as usual'. Specifically, this means being close to the customer, clearly focusing on innovative ways and a sustainable perspective.

German entrepreneurs must strengthen their innovative power in order to find answers to digitalisation and globally active competitors from the US and China. New technologies and digital value-added structures generate disruptions, the half-life of companies is decreasing and the pace is increasing continuously.
