The book presents hidden champions in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and Turkey. Hidden champions are companies who occupy a number 1 or 2 position in their market worldwide and a number 1 position in Europe on the basis of market share; who are small or medium sized as measured by sales revenue and who have a low visibility profile in the public domain. They have been studied as a joint project between CEEMAN and IEDC-Bled School of Management, Slovenia. This is an outcome of extensive research undertaken by over 30 researchers and covers 15 countries from Russia to Albania; covering many contexts, political systems, cultures and infrastructures. The book covers the main generic features of hidden champions (leadership, ownership structure, culture, governance, innovative behaviour, marketing and sustainability) and provides detailed country by country studies.
