Confidence Survey 2013: Positive yet cautious
By Euan Youdale12 November 2013
There is a renewed sense of optimism in the AI 2013 Confidence Survey, and an overall belief that things are moving in the right direction. However, cautiousness will still play a major part in decision making over the next year.
It is worth noting the confidence levels of participants when they were asked to rate opportunity levels for their business over the next five years. At 65.5%, the figure is at its highest this year since 2008 when it stood at 71.3%, just short of 2007 when confidence was at its highest, 72.5%.
