The Harvard Business School conducted a survey among their alumni about the perceptions of US competitiveness [link to  http://www.hbs.edu/competitiveness/survey/]. INSEAD used a similar survey about perceptions of European competitiveness. We adapted the survey to the regional level to measure perceptions of local business leaders on competitiveness s of our region.
