Global Recession to Global Recovery: 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.
