Mittelstand future panel

In order to identify future-oriented, practical and economically relevant topics for medium-sized businesses, the IfM Bonn has created the "Mittelstand future Panel" in 2015. Within the framework of the panel, representatives of small and medium-sized companies and, at regular intervals, experts from the fields of business, economic policy and science are asked to give their assessment of current challenges.

Design of the study

Based on the company or expert survey, topics are identified, summarized and assigned to fields of action. The order of the fields of action corresponds to the frequency of the mentions.
