About this paper
This conclusions paper is derived from the Radical Times Require Radical Action dinner series presented by SAS' Jonathan Hornby that reached top executives in six U.S. cities. Attendees' concerns about the economic downturn and their strategies for adapting are offered here alongside 11 perspectives from Hornby's book (forthcoming August 2009), Radical Action for Radical Times. Ideas include viewing recessions as an opportunity to grow stronger, resisting the knee-jerk impulse to downsize, and embracing innovation to survive and thrive.
