Dangerous Liaisons: How businesses are learning to work with their new stakeholders is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, sponsored by Verizon. In researching this report, we conducted a major survey of 660 executives in March and April 2010. Of the survey respondents, 31% were based in Asia, 28% in North America, and 28% in Western
Europe. The rest were based in Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East and Africa. The companies represented were spread across 20 different sectors; 50% had global revenues between $500m and $1bn, and 25% had global revenues above $10bn; and 54% of survey respondents were C-level executives.
The report also draws upon 17 in-depth interviews with company executives, academics and other experts in the field.
The report was written by Sarah Murray, with additional reporting by Conrad Heine. Paul Lewis edited the report. We would like to thank all those who participated in the survey and the interviewees for their time and insight.
