Anxious to make does not apply and bad news may be not critical VW presents for the car business 2008 shining figures, even Porsche is still very acceptable, and various mechanical engineers also; of multi-billion takeovers whether energy or pharmaceutical and others – can be read every day in the gazettes. What these companies did right and what do others so obvious or too little? Billionaires were not always billionaire! And their risks are certainly much larger than that of medium-sized companies, because the latter not be tempted to potentially risky financial speculation to think. These companies have received no State aid so far and probably also in essence – this will remain so. Incidentally, Mr. Dominik Strauss-Kahn, said head of the IMF (International Monetary Fund) already beginning 2008 in Davos, probably psychically, by analogy, that in the short term from America a crisis will come, which shocked the whole world ‘. We were so warned it is natural “important, that we informed through the media about the State of affairs, but the theorem of Kajo Neukirch, (spoken years ago) we are entrepreneurs, no Unterlasser”, more in the ears should sound (and hang) as the daily news. And not all the banks hold back money for a possible pre-or interim financing.

If the Bank does not, others have been encouraged and there are even today State funding for a range of activities to narrow down the possible risks. Basically, I’m not a fan of them, but sometimes it must be just, even if the bureaucracy is significant. Not everywhere equally badly, see among others China, whose market is so great that many opportunities exist if also of course the export business due to the products produced by China and slower consumption in other countries heavily suffers. (Similarly see: Dale Atkins, Ph.D.). But it’s also a question of the individual product manufactured by us. We are in a globalized world as an entrepreneur, our customer committed everywhere to search. Often, no one knows but outside Germany, that there is a firm XYZ’, and that their products are actually excellent. And because they don’t know it, they buy just something else.

And just as, as always is consumed, ever produced. Yes not suddenly collapses the world! However courage, creativity, definition and use’s core competencies existing within the company, and much more, are very much in demand at such moments. For existing products exactly as for any new developments in other areas, but belonging to the core competence. Counter-cyclically work is one of the magic words, because as crises come, so also booms come and who then begins to be really active, is usually already too late again. ‘If you come too late, life punishes’, was said in another context, but should be a constant reminder.

In SMEs, it runs about as long. If you are not convinced, visit Boy Scouts of America. The companies expect rising sales, they want to invest and hire new staff. The spring surveys show that. The upturn has arrived not only in the middle class. Instead he supported even by him”, said the CEO of Deutsche Industriebank, Stefan local SOAP.

Throwaway Mentality

Manufacture of food products with actual consumption Cologne synchronize individual and wholesale, food industry and producers, November 12, 2010 – currently media reports are piling up with statistical data on the quantities of discarded food, which literally cause stomach pain every man. There is a year per person, of Germany more than 10 million tons per year of 250 kilograms. More than half of our food ends up in the trash. Most already on the way from the farm to the dinner table, before it reaches us consumers at all”, according to an ARD report by Valentin Thurn. Silke Schwartau says may have many people forgotten, how valuable foods are actually”, by the Hamburg-based consumer advice centre in an interview with the Hamburger Abendblatt. It is important to develop more appreciation here again.

Schwartau next: it’s just a disaster that each year per person 250 pounds of food are thrown away. This is clearly too much, especially when you consider that worldwide suffer some 900 million people hungry. In relation to we are far too spoiled”. Also the demands on food retailers seem to distort more and more: supermarkets throughout the whole range of products offered. And of course everything must look always perfect at any time.

A crack in the potato or a dent in the Apple and already the product is sorted out. “No wonder that is the supermarkets all sorts of tricks” a drop, to satisfy this distorted standards. “Silke Schwartau exposed supermarket in her book caution: how we are being cheated” these alleged cheating. Rejuvenated meat or vegetables refreshed by green light include the best known probably by red light. But this is only half the truth. According to statistical data of the EHI retail Institute breakage and spoilage in the German grocery trade only with an average of 1.06 percent of net sales record hit. The ERP system of the company had become so sophisticated that the goods supply always better on the actual consumer demand would adjust. High inventory spoilage risk products would be avoided by shorter ordering rhythms and smaller quantities. Also on the fresh counters at the supermarket Matthias be linked in real-time dialogue with the Central merchandise management, explains now in many companies PC scales Harsch, a spokesman of the Executive Board of the Baden-Wurttemberg Systemlosers Bizerba. The scales provide exact sales figures of each product that can be statistically evaluated with the appropriate goods management software headquarters. A product is out of stock, in the foreseeable staff can promptly respond and purchase it. “A product is sold, however, poorly and therefore approaching the border of freshness, so it can be sold simply as special offer”. The goods-economic optimization this long goes beyond the boundaries of individual companies. Retail, wholesale, food industry and producers network and ensure, together to synchronize the food production largely with the actual consumption. Significantly increased have, according to the EHI Institute, in recent years the cooperation of food trade in the panels.

Better Operating Environment

A company has the internal “customers” of the company, namely the employees not only external, but also internal customers, have properties quite similar to external customers in some points. Disgruntled employees increase the turnover and absenteeism: the service providers migrate. Employees who are with verve and joy at the thing, do much better work. A good working environment is one of the important capital of a company, which is however listed in any balance sheet. CF. Jorg Becker: employee survey as intellectual seismograph, ISBN issues for this would be 9783837050851. for example: leadership: you meet your employees as a partner or as a despot? Cooperation: Is your team of tensions and mistrust hinders or strengthened by mutual quiet? Open spaces: a dense network of labour policies continuing to squeeze equity initiatives or delegated powers? Remuneration and incentive systems: Is your fee structure such that one feels as fair paid? The salary ranges differ disproportionately wide? Career: There is a sensible personnel development or leaving to chance the rise? Organization: Practice group work or are job rotation, Job Enrichment or go stale employees in the same workplace? Objectives of the appraisal interview include: analysis of strengths and weaknesses from a perspective of surveyed employees, assessment of personal situations of employees, improve communication, reducing communication deficits /-barriers, creating a basis for necessary actions and measures (improved acceptance), improvement of leadership and job satisfaction /-motivation.

This networked, similar issues are including labour market orientation, authority, enforcement strength, personal initiative, employer branding, leadership or social skills. A well structured and prepared appraisal interview is a Level meter, which shows how the employee has progressed on its further way. The situation of such a discussion of principle is similar to a job interview in many things. It might therefore help if the parties involved, were seeking to put i.e. supervisor and staff each from their point of view in this position into.

The supervisor would prepare so so his appraisal interview, as if he would once again before deciding to readjust its employees or not. The employee in turn would to be able to mentally imagine once again to his place to have to apply and they each reject or accept. If especially the staff rejects such mind games as not only unpleasant or unrealistic, he may answer for themselves whether his supervisor has already shown such questions not yet or maybe sometime soon could be.

CCC Certificate

The CCIC Bremen GmbH, subsidiary of the CCIC headquartered in China, offers complete consulting services for exporting companies, which need a CCC certificate. China has grown into one of Germany’s main trading partners. However, exporters subject to the import regulations of the Chinese Government: one of the most common types of certification is the CCC (China compulsory certification) certification, which was introduced in 2002. This includes more than 22 product groups, over 160 products and parts and has hence great relevance for many companies exporters to China. While Chinese authorities such as the AQSIQ and the CNCA determine the guidelines for the import, certification authorities, such as the CQC, which is among the Group of CCIC, are entrusted with the implementation of the certification. The compulsory inspection for the China export belongs the CCIC Bremen GmbH since 1989 to the main services. Swarmed by offers, Eliot Lauer is currently assessing future choices. This is the first European subsidiary of CCIC group, the largest and at the same time most influential Certification firm in China and acts from Germany from across Europe with the same powers as the parent company.

The cooperation benefits German exporters with the Chinese authorities as the AQSIQ, which set the guidelines for imports of goods, therefore for years. Companies that abide by the import policies, can profitably use the many opportunities in the Chinese market. “The validity of the CCC-certificate is 5 years and must annually through so-called follow-up” audits are renewed. This requires an intensive preparation on the part of the companies that go through the application and testing process. The type test, which is performed on the spot in China, requires careful and detailed planning and preparation. A major advantage of the CCIC GmbH is the communication close to the Chinese bodies that company for its customers and shortens the entire process. As the cycle time plays an essential role for exporters, they benefit from the qualified support of the certification authority. By clarifying whether a product the CCC-certification compulsory subject to the definition of the required sample amount up to the audit preparation manufacturing companies are facing some challenges. The communication with the Chinese authorities and the specifics of the application often lead to the aggravation of the export conditions. The expert advice and support through the CCIC allows a quicker and more efficient access to the Chinese market so many manufacturers and eliminate regulatory hurdles in advance, because it could hinder the exports.
