CEOs have powerful tools when they face today’s business environment: deals, partnerships and divestitures give one agility without the upheaval.
CEOs need grit to face the toughest headwinds of today's business environment: disruption from new market entrants, new products and new customer expectations - all enabled by continually developing technologies. According to a new KPMG report, CEOs have a powerful tool at their disposal: investment strategies.
Transformation through transaction: How innovative investment strategies are helping CEOs to embrace disruption explores the issues specific to investment strategies uncovered in a survey of 1,200 CEOs.
The report confirms that companies can minimize disruption and hedge their bets on what future business models will look like by investing in strategic partnerships and corporate venturing. In addition, divestments will become a more significant part of the transformation agenda and these will require the same strategic insights as the acquisition process.
Referencing these and other survey insights, the report finds increased use of data analytics and establishing a clear vision will enable companies to make the right strategic investments early to more effectively address future sources of disruption.
