Accelerating Transformation

Lynne Doughtie shares powerful insights on how today’s CEOs are recognizing opportunities amid the unprecedented and accelerated change transforming their industries.


KPMG’s CEO Outlook Study reveals that the time for change is now

The majority of the 400 U.S. chief executives we surveyed say the next three years will be more critical for industries than the past 50. Why? Because as disruptive competitors, business models and technologies threaten business as usual, CEOs have an unprecedented opportunity to reinvent their businesses and drive new growth. 

To navigate change and seize opportunities, CEOs will foster innovation, step up customer focus, collaborate externally, and transform their businesses in numerous other ways. Despite the unknown obstacles and sharp turns on the road ahead, they are optimistic about where their journey will take them over the next three years.

Hello and welcome.

For the third consecutive year, KPMG is proud to present the findings of our 2016 Global CEO Study.

We are excited to share insights gained from global CEOs, that cut across all industries.

These leaders shared their candid perspectives on technology, growth, cyber security, customer loyalty, and their ability to innovate. 

They’ve provided thoughtful assessments about the challenges and opportunities that their enterprises face in the next three years….

In fact, the three-year time horizon for this study carries great significance, as two-thirds told us... that the next three years will be more critical for their industries than the previous half century.

A major reason is the continuous evolution of sophisticated technologies – whether it’s advanced machine intelligence, mobile or the use of data & analytics and cloud computing.

Speed is another factor... as technology is being deployed more rapidly than ever... to transform – and disrupt – established companies.

The impact is profound... 40% of CEOs believe they will be running completely-transformed entities within the next several years. 

These are just a few of the many insights in this year’s CEO Study.

I encourage you to download a copy... and share the link with your colleagues.
