A total of 2,454 respondents from North America (40%), Europe (40%), APAC (16%) and the Middle East (4%) participated in the survey conducted in January 2016. The respondents represented C-suite decision makers, mid-level managers, MBA students, and Futurists. The business leaders represented a cross section of six industries – Finance, Life Sciences, Healthcare, Insurance, Retail, Manufacturing. All companies had more than $250M+ revenue. Together these companies accounted for about $7.3 trillion in total revenue over the past year. To supplement our Work Ahead program, Roubini ThoughtLab conducted a telephone survey of senior executives in the media & entertainment industry in November of 2017. The survey included 350 executives in the U.S., Canada, UK, France and Germany. Half of the respondents worked in companies with annual revenues between $500 million and $999 million, and the other half in firms with annual revenues of $1 billion or more.
The study was conducted with research and economic support from Roubini ThoughtLab, an independent thought leadership consultancy. Roubini ThoughtLab is a joint venture with eConsult Solutions, a leading economic consultancy. It was founded by CEO Lou Celi and noted economist Dr. Nouriel Roubini.
