Value Creation in ECS: Seizing Control of the Cycle examines the total shareholder returns (TSRs) of 42 ECS companies over the past ten years. The report is based on The Boston Consulting Group’s fourteenth annual report in the Value Creators series, Improving the Odds: Strategies for Superior Value Creation. The series provides detailed empirical rankings of the world’s top value creators and distills managerial lessons from their success. It also highlights key trends in the global economy and world capital markets and describes how those trends are likely to shape future priorities for value creation. Finally, the series shares BCG’s latest analytical tools and client experiences to help companies better manage value creation.
In the wake of the worst financial crisis since the 1930s—a crisis that played a huge role in ECS performance and influenced many industry changes—ECS leaders must come to understand the forces at play and how different companies have successfully (or unsuccessfully) responded and adapted to those forces. In this report, we offer lessons to help those leaders improve their business, financial, and investor strategies, and we raise 15 key questions that should be on the mind of every ECS executive today.
