Systematically shaping your future

Our KERN experts for business modelling work with fundamental methods of business model and product development, which are based on the analysis of the competition and the data. The larger the analysed database, the more valid the forecast. And that is exactly what the Use of AI ? it significantly facilitates the analysis of very large amounts of data and the subsequent development process. The strategy recommendations developed as a result of this process become significantly more robust and effective due to the broader data base. Thus, business model development, which is often driven by experience and gut feeling, receives a broad data-based foundation.

In addition, the KERN approach to corporate development still offers three decisive advantages:

Flexibility: This exclusive process, previously only used by large, globally active groups, has now also been adapted to the requirements of small and medium-sized family businesses.

Appropriate budget orientation: The budget to further develop existing business models or to open up completely new business areas in times of radical changes in the environment is tailored to the needs of family businesses.

Practical relevance and multiple applicability: The result of this development process is not just presentations or dossiers that explain theoretically what you could do better based on extensive data, figures and facts. Rather, you will receive concrete, realisable suggestions and ideas on how to eliminate weaknesses in your business model and open up new business areas. This applies to business models in the consumer market as well as to the B2B sector.

Our promise: The further development of their business model is not an expensive and lengthy process. The risks are significantly lower than when awarding expensive strategy consulting mandates, because our KERN business succession process, supported by artificial intelligence, is up to ten times faster and significantly more cost-effective than standard market approaches to business model optimisation.

Saving energy and reducing CO² emissions are just two key buzzwords for the future. Together with KERN, the company reviewed its current positioning and added key unique selling points to its business model as part of the subsequent strategy process.

Finally time for a new life plan

Mr Greppmair from KERN assisted me with the sale of my caretaker service in Munich in an always pleasant and very competent manner.
