This appendix is a complimentary resource to the Special Report “Closing the Gap: Designing and Delivering a Strategy that Works”, written by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), and supported by the Brightline Initiative.

To understand why many organizations fail to bridge the gap between strategy design and delivery, The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by the Brightline Initiative,undertook a global multi-sector survey of 500 senior executives from companies with annual revenues of $1 billion or more.
