Hidden Champions: Lessons from 500 of the World's Best Unknown Companies

Hermann Simon (Author)
Synopsis The book is primarily addressed to practitioners who, I am sure, will appreciate the emphasis on practical relevance rather that on scientific rigor.  Business researchers, finding some widely accepted views challenged will, I hope, be encouraged to delve more closely into these issues.  I owe thanks to the many who supported my work.  First and foremost, I would like to thank the founders, owners, and managers of the hidden champions for granting me innumerable hourse of stimulating discussions and learning experiences.  I thank the German Research Foundation for generously supporting the project form 1993 to 1995.  Echart Schmitt, my research assistant, a highly competent, intellectual sparring partner, contributed immensely to the effort in all its phases, for which I am deeply indebted to him.  I am also grateful to my colleagues at Simon, Kucher and Partners, Strategy and Marketing Consultants, for many inspiraing, insightful, and challenging discussions on the strategic issues addressed in this book.
