Abstract

Long-term thinking is investigated in five sectors: energy, finance, hotels, mining and pharmaceuticals. 1 The objectives of the study were to ascertain the prevalence of long-term thinking in these sectors. In addition, the benefits and barriers of implementing long-term thinking in these sectors were assessed. The research method incorporated a combination of qualitative and quantitative data collection. Within each sector, target companies were selected based on criteria of relevance and accessibility. Individuals were then identified for questionnaire administration and/or interview participation. Respondents consisted of Board executives and senior and middle managers, selected as being directly involved with strategic decision making.
