Chris Stern Announces New Product at IFEM

Raleigh, NC based consulting boutique now offering in-house fast-track performance improvement workshops to North American subsidiaries of European companies.



RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Independent research shows that 70% of U.S. subsidiaries of European companies underperform. Chris Stern, Chairman and CEO of IFEM today announced a new product to tackle this challenge: "The reasons for underperformance are manifold, but one common denominator is a misunderstanding of what each management culture perceives to be the appropriate strategy process."

In cooperation with a group of international seminar providers, IFEM is now offering two-day company-specific workshops to provide European companies with underperforming subsidiaries in North America the knowledge required to speed up market entry, and achieve growth and profitability of their North American branches or investments. The seminars are offered in Europe, or in the U.S.

Stern: "Our team of bicultural and dual-national strategy advisors understands these challenges. Our advisors have experienced and solved predominant problems themselves. Most importantly, they have done it with their engagement in smaller to mid-size companies as well as companies listed on major U.S. stock exchanges. During the first day of the program we will jointly analyze the situation and discover why lackluster performance occurred in the first place; and during the second day we will develop realistic goals and a pragmatic pathway leading the North American entity towards appropriate results."

IFEM believes that this product and its game-changing low-cost approach will provide immediate insight into the core strategic challenges every international business needs to address. Clients will receive confirmation for many strategic moves, but they will also learn why certain of their well-perceived decisions have lead to a performance decline. Most importantly, the methodology is designed to find a sustainable fast-track recovery for the foreign subsidiary.
