Setting priorities in the crisis

Setting priorities in the crisis

Since 1997 Arthur D. Little has been investigating the common factors that underpin the exceptional performance of six global companies. Revisiting these companies during the current crisis, we have established that the findings we made during the recession of the early 2000s still hold true. In general, our selected companies still outperform their peers. The eight common factors identified by ADL over ten years ago still form the basis of each company's strong performance as well as supporting the overall hypothesis that, especially in turbulent times, focusing on the "basics" can make the difference between mediocre and exceptional performance.
