Honoring at the German Mittelstands-Summit: Science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar congratulates itdesign GmbH from Tübingen on being awarded the TOP 100 seal. The award ceremony took place on Friday, June 28.

In the scientific selection process, itdesign was particularly convincing in size class C (over 200 employees) in the category "Innovation-promoting top management". The itdesign management spends around a third of its working time on innovation and spent almost 40 percent of its turnover on innovation activities in 2022. To promote the development of innovations, the company relies on innovative structures and processes: Central to the management of the internal project portfolio is the company's own cloud software "Meisterplan". It makes it clear who is working on which projects and how the projects are prioritized.

"Every month, the management takes a critical look at this list with the portfolio managers of the units. If new projects come in or planning changes, we can react flexibly," explains Managing Director Christoph Adamczyk.

Since 1993, compamedia has been awarding the TOP 100 seal for special innovative strength and above-average innovation success to medium-sized companies. The scientific management has been in the hands of Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke since 2002. Franke is the founder and director of the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. The mentor of TOP 100 is the science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar. Project partners are the Fraunhofer Society for the Promotion of Applied Research and the BVMW. More information about the award at
