For those of you that haven’t been following the “are we there yet” discussions in the blogosphere, a colleague thoughtfully sent me this link to a recent McKinsey study. The study opens with the following:
Three-quarters of respondents to our latest survey expect their companies to enjoy a profit increase in the next year, and fewer than half expect to cut costs during the same period—both firsts since October 2008, when we began asking. On the whole, this survey shows that executives see economies on the mend, with positive prospects for their countries—84 percent expect national GDP to rise in 2010—as well as for their companies.
The full study can accessed here.
The folks over at the Harvard Business Review selected some of the findings to feature in their Daily Stat.. Also interesting.
