Recessions Can Make Companies, Not Just Break Them


The Bain U.S. study found more than a fifth of companies in the bottom quartile in their industries jumped to the top quartile during the last recession. Meanwhile, more than a fifth of all “leadership companies” (those in the top quartile of financial performance in their industry) fell to the bottom quartile. Only half as many companies made such dramatic gains or losses before or after the recession.

…all the more reason to make smart strategic investments, not just cost-cutting, to survive and emerge successfully out of the storm.
