It is well known fact that all good things, as also bad things, come to an end and business cycles pass through good and bad economic times. Economically 2010 was a year of transition from economic recession to recovery. Economies were improving in some countries and industries were showing signs of betterment but were still far away from a significant path of recovery and were contemplating to shift their strategies that could be more suitable in a changed scenario of transition. A transition period is unique because it represents a time of adjustment and uncertainty which has common forces of varying impact on individual enterprises, societies, geographies, and companies’ strategies. There are no clear or universal ‘must-dos’ in a period of transition; rather, there are times when leaders make the changes that are necessary to get ahead for sustainable growth of their business. The transition from recession to recovery presents unique opportunities and challenges to all organizations and once the recovery begins the answers are more complex. Executives face a decision of where to invest and trade to support recovering revenues rather than to continue cost cutting.
