6 Priorities CEOs Care Most About

  1. 1. 6 Priorities CEOs Care Most About
  2. 2. What Do CEOs Care Most About? We looked to leading consulting companies* for the answer. *KPMG, Global CEO Outlook Survey; IBM, Global C-Suite Study; and PwC, 19th Annual Global CEO Survey.
  3. 3. Six Top Priorities Impact the Entire C-Suite
  4. 4. Finding Growth • The majority of CEOs said growth was even more important than achieving cost efficiencies. (KMPG) • CEOs of more-successful companies are highly focused on growth through: • New products, services, or business models • Deeper customer relationships • Innovation as a long-term strategy • Geographical expansion • Deeper ecosystems (IBM) Nearly half of CEOs anticipate they’ll make at least one acquisition in the next three years. (KPMG)
  5. 5. Taking on Risk • Standing still is dangerous. CEOs believe they need to be more aggressive about taking on risk in order to grow. (KPMG) • Competitive threats come from both new market entrants and established competitors. • Cybersecurity is one of the top five risks for 20 percent of CEOs and the #1 risk for tech firm CEOs. CEOs have more appetite for risk, including finding ways to move more quickly into new product and services areas and regions. (KPMG)
  6. 6. Managing Regulatory Changes • Regulatory concerns (including corporate tax rates, environmental regulations, and financial reporting) ranked as the second most important topic for CEOs, only after global economic growth. (KPMG) • Over-regulation was cited as the top concern by 79 percent of CEOs, and they predict an even more diverse set of global regulatory regimes and requirements in the future. (PwC) CEOs put governments and regulatory bodies as the second-most important stakeholder group. (PwC)
  7. 7. Leveraging Technology • Technology is a critical differentiator. Mobile, social, and cloud were cited as having the greatest impact. (IBM) • CEOs are concerned about disruptive technology from competitors upending existing business models. (KPMG) • More than two-thirds of CEOs view data and analytics as technologies to broadly adopt—but CEOs haven’t fully mastered using data to drive business outcomes. (PwC) CEOs cited disruptive technology as the third most important issue facing their companies. (KPMG)
  8. 8. Pursuing Innovation • The majority of market-leading CEOs pursue disruptive innovation, not purely incremental improvements. (IBM) • Transformations need to happen simultaneously across the business, requiring organizational agility and a willingness to change—and embracing innovation as a core competency. (IBM) “Pioneers aren’t simply tweaking existing products and services; they’re reinventing their firms.” (IBM)
  9. 9. People and Culture • More than three-quarters of CEOs expect to increase headcount over the next three years, yet worry about finding the right skills. (KPMG) • CEOs realize culture must be a priority to attract the right people. Having a purpose that employees can align to, providing the skills and opportunities to learn and grow, and building an inclusive culture all are critical to attracting and retaining the best talent, which in turn helps drive innovation initiatives that drive the business forward.” (KPMG) • Culture impacts the bottom line. Suppliers and customers are looking at how companies behave in the wider social context, not just traditional metrics of functionality and cost. (KPMG) Retaining the right talent requires a mix of the right opportunities, offering chances to learn and change, and having a culture that encourages and rewards innovation.
  10. 10. Next Steps • Focus on six critical areas: growth, risk, regulatory management, technology, innovation, and people/culture. • Examine the weaknesses and strengths within finance, HR, and IT organizations. Leaders should take the steps necessary to help their CEO execute on these leading priorities.
