WHY PRODUCE AN EXECUTIVE RADAR?
As a top strategy consultancy in the rail sector, Roland Berger Strategy Consultants actively supports industry leaders in identifying challenges, uncovering solutions and driving decisive change in their organizations. We have identified a growing need for dialogue amongst senior railway executives regarding the key issues that drive the industry. Therefore, we launched an "Executive Radar" to support executivelevel thinking in the European railway industry. This survey was conducted between July and September 2011, involving more than 150 top industry executives and representing a broad range of segments and positions in the value chain. The survey captured prevailing trends on two hot topics: > How have liberalization and privatization already affected companies along the value chain and what will be the biggest challenges in the coming years? > Which instruments can increase your companies' profitability and strengthen the sustainability of your financial base? Here we present the conclusions and trust you will find them insightful in supporting your strategic thinking and decision making. We would welcome the opportunity to have a more detailed discussion directly with you on any of the issues presented.
