Success in a world of constant disruption takes leadership with strategic vision. In KPMG’s 2015 Global CEO Outlook Study we asked over 1,200 Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), including 52 from Australia, about how their company and the business world is evolving and what they will be doing over the next 3 years to turn challenges into opportunities.
Australia’s CEOs are indicating a striking rise in confidence in domestic and global economic prospects. The study found the top strategic priorities for Australian CEOs are a stronger client focus, increasing cash flow, developing new growth strategies and reducing cost structures. Many recognise they need to transform their businesses if they are to survive and prosper. To do so, however, businesses need to be willing to take bigger risks.
