Leadership Pulse Shows Sales, Net Profit and Employment to Improve
July Results For University of Michigan Business School/eePulse Research Study

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - August 4, 2003 - Respondents to the July 2003 Leadership Pulse, a research project conducted by the University of Michigan Business School and eePulse, Inc., indicate that sales, net profit and number of customers are expected to increase over the next month. Consisting of five, short questions, the Web-based Pulse Survey is sent out to thousands of worldwide executives on a monthly basis to measure the effects of key resources and confidence levels on overall business growth and performance.

In the July Leadership Pulse, participants were asked the Resource Movement Scale questions, or how they would rate the level of movement (from reduction to growth) over the next month for gross sales, number of employees, number of customers, net profits, and products and/or services. The largest improvement over June’s survey data is estimated to be in sales, with a five point gain (gain and loss numbers are calculated using the change in percentage of people who indicated growth on the horizon in the next month). Employment numbers look more favorable with the number of firms planning to reduce staff decreasing by three points since June.
Respondents were also asked what the most important action is that a leader can take to improve growth potential. The most frequent responses centered around sales and customer service leading to sales (42%).

Other comments related to the following:
-People - 30%
-Financial/Internal - 26%
-Culture - 21%
-Product/Technology - 20%
-Strategy - 16%
-Leadership/Management - 11%
-Economy/Economic Conditions - 5%

“Next month, respondents will be asked to rate their confidence in leadership, their company’s vision, ability to change, economic conditions, and their people,“ states Theresa Welbourne, Ph.D., Samuel Zell & Robert Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies at the Michigan Business School Adjunct Associate Professor and eePulse, Inc. CEO. “During the months when this Confidence Scale is not asked, the research team provides drill-down questions that are designed to obtain more information about the prior month’s findings. In addition to the metrics, open-ended comment data are collected and analyzed every month.“
Individual leaders who wish to be included in the Leadership Pulse study can contact Dr. Welbourne or the research team at eePulse at 734.996.2321. A website is available for those organizations that would like to have up to 50 senior leaders participate in the study. If a company participates with multiple executives, it will receive a personalized company report each month and be able to compare their company results to those of the overall sample and various public sub-samples. If you want expanded participation for your organization, please visit the following web site: www.umbs.leadership.eepulse.com .
