BCG Henderson Institute

Businesses are dying faster than ever: As we report in our HBR article “The Biology of Corporate Survival,” a recent BCG study shows that one in three firms will be delisted in the next five years for reasons such as bankruptcy, liquidation, and M&A. That mortality rate is six times as high as the rate 40 years ago. Why? Because companies are struggling to adapt to increasingly complex business environments.
