Die erfolgreichen Unternehmun gen haben es vielmehr geschafft, ebenfalls starke Marken in ihrem section auf zubauen. Und doch ist gerade im InvestitionsgOterbereich eine systematische Markenpolitik mit entsprechenden ganzheitlichen Konzepten nur selten anzutref fen. Auch die wissenschaftliche Beschaftigung mit diesem Thema blieb bisher auf Teilbereiche beschrankt.
