IBM Survey of CEOs

Posted on March 20, 2011


Every two years, IBM surveys CEOs across the globe about the current challeges facing leaders.  This survey has broad implication for organizational strategy, leadership development and leadership selection.

The 2010 edition called “Capitalizing on Complexity” is a gold mine of information. This time they surveyed CEOS but also students in Leadership programs such as MBAs.

The four themes are:

  • Standing out in a complex world
  • Creative Leadership
  • Reinventing customer relationships
  • Building operating dexterity

This report takes a bit to download but it is well worth the time. You will read and refer to this document often in any Leadership position.
