Australian CEOs and their global peers are increasingly focused on their innovation capability, the robustness and agility of their business models, and the shortfall in their talent pool, in order to maintain relevance and capture new market share.
The next 3 years will be an era of unprecedented change and significance for businesses around the world, amid moderate growth. Australian CEOs therefore face a plethora of mission critical agendas, including technology and digitisation, data capture and analytics, heightened customer focus and disruptive capability sourcing.
In the 2016 KPMG Global CEO Outlook Survey, nearly 1,300 global CEOs (including 53 from Australia) revealed the key issues and challenges they face in the next 3 years and the strategies they have in place to manage them. The survey explores the perspectives of new and experienced CEOs, with tenure ranging from less than 1 year to over 15 years, across major industries, including public and private firms.
