Risk for Manufacturers and Retailers Shifts from Recession to Recovery

44 percent of executives believe the biggest risk in 2010 will be recovering from the recession, according to AMR Research's Quarterly Supply Chain Risk Survey

Boston — October 13, 2009 — Executives currently are more worried about the economic recovery than a continued recession in 2010, according to the latest quarterly risk report from AMR Research.

In its latest survey of corporate executives, 44 percent of respondents said they believe the recovery cycle is the biggest risk in 2010 because of potential commodity price increases, limited internal skills after workforce reductions, and problems meeting new demand with constrained capacity, low inventory and transportation constraints.
