The burning platform: How companies are managing change in a recession is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, sponsored by Celerant Consulting.
As the basis for the report, the Economist Intelligence Unit conducted a survey of 561 senior executives from the US, UK, Germany, France and seven Scandinavian and Benelux countries. Just under half of the survey participants hailed from the automotive, manufacturing, energy and natural resources, telecommunications, and chemicals sectors, with the remainder coming from 14 other sectors. All of the firms represented in the sample have annual revenue in excess of US$500m.
