30 HEADHUNTERS DEFINE TOMORROW'S MANAGERS AND MARKETS

 TURIN, Italy, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- International headhunters say tomorrow's trading Europe could expand dramatically to include more than 30 countries instead of the current 12.
 They say the current upheaval in Eastern Europe and the partitioning of countries into new territories will lead to a new giant European Community including Scandinavia and much of Central and Eastern Europe.
 These were the conclusions of a conference in Venice organized by Intersearch, the worldwide executive recruitment organization, which gathered 19 partners from Europe, the United States, Canada and Japan along with such key clients as CIGA Hotels, Fiat Group, Greiner, Hellenic Bottling Company, Rhone Poulenc, Sybase, Unisys, and Walt Disney.
 The delegates defined the new emerging Europe as three-speed. France, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland were seen as first-speed countries leading the way in product innovation, research, and technology developments.
 The United Kingdom, Italy, Spain and Denmark were seen as second- speed countries manufacturing and adding value to products developed by the first group. And Greece, Portugal, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia and the republics in the Soviet Union were seen as third-speed countries providing low cost manufacturing, lower added value and volume output.
 Delegates agreed that the companies most likely to succeed in this new-look Europe would have flatter structures to ensure rapid response to market demands.
 They also predicted that managers would have to be more flexible and more willing to acquire new skills to tight deadlines.
 Other changes identified by the conference included a need for managers to possess a portfolio of skills and expertise which could be instantly applied to wide ranging situations.
 Representatives also agreed that the new, three-speed Europe would force senior decision makers to focus on core businesses which would pay close attention to their clients and moves in the marketplace.
