Hidden champions are highly innovative small to medium size companies that have leading market positions in niche markets internationally. They successfully ride on a wave of global competitiveness, and even in times of economic turndown demonstrate the capacity to grow. Inspired by the bestselling book of Prof. Hermann Simon Hidden Champions of the 21st Century, CEEMAN, the international association for management development in dynamic societies, organized an international research of over 100 hidden champions in 15 countries of Central and Eastern Europe and Turkey.

This project has now resulted also in a new book Hidden Champions in CEE and Turkey – Carving a Global Niche, published by Springer in late 2013. The book offers interdisciplinary and cross-study chapters on leadership, governance, marketing, innovation, sustainability and financial aspects of the hidden champions in CEE, as well as country-specific chapters highlighting individual stories of selected companies and their success strategies.

The conference participants will have the opportunity to buy the book Hidden Champions in CEE and Turkey (eBook or hardcover) with a 20% discount.
