The survey entitled 'The Change Game: How Today's Global Trends Are Shaping Tomorrow's Companies' offers intelligent insights into the major global trends and issues that are influencing organizations, and what they mean for the future. The survey raises the following key questions: whether competition is now keener than ever before; what follows from enhanced competition business maneuvers, management behaviors and corporate strategies; how companies have responded to their more demanding customers; and what is happening to corporate culture and organizational solidarity in the face of change.
