First corporate anorexia and now corporate amnesia

ISSN: 1363-8483

Publication date: 1 April 1996


Discusses criticisms of downsizing and its perceived demise. Spells out that perhaps downsizing has not led to the gains in productivity that it should do, and has therefore led to damaged employee morale. Produces evidence that 40% of executives were unhappy with the results of downsizing. Contends that the stripping out of layers of middle management has proved to have a weakening, detrimental effect. Deplores the continuing misuse of downsizing and the long‐term effect it will have on business
