On a sunny afternoon in June 2006, the research team looked out to the city that Peter Fischer had looked out on 18 months before. They had come to present the results of their research to Unit 2, but the mood did not match the weather. There was despondency in the air, staff stayed mostly in their offices rather than wandering out to discuss the results displayed on posters near the coffee room, and the researchers learnt that business had not picked up as hoped. No-one knew it at the time, but the Unit would largely disappear six months later in a major corporate reorganization.
