Getting ahead in a recession by making better decisions is an Economist Intelligence Unit report sponsored by SAS. It is the first paper in a three-part series entitled Management magnified, aimed at helping managers find ways to guide their companies more effectively through troubled times.
The Economist Intelligence Unit bears sole responsibility for this report. The Economist Intelligence Unit’s editorial team executed the survey, conducted the interviews and wrote the report. The findings and views expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsor.
The research drew on two main initiatives. We conducted a wide-ranging online survey of decisionmaking practices in May 2009. In all, 229 senior executives took part. To supplement the survey results, we also conducted in-depth interviews with senior executives knowledgeable about decision-making in a corporate context. The author of the report was Jan Fedorowicz, and the editor was Dan Armstrong. Mike Kenny was responsible for design and layout.
