The report presents results of the 'cross-country analysis' based on the five country reports from phase 1 of the research, which surveyed a total of 74 enterprises and 564 managers during 1998. As it was not possible to provide a cross-country analysis of all nine countries in this report, it was considered useful to add a "postscript" at the end of the report. This chapter "Lessons from Nine Central and Eastern European Countries" covers key findings, issues, conclusions and recommendations for both research phases 1 and 2, thus 158 companies and 852 managers.
