KPMG’s U.S. CEO Outlook 2017 of 400 U.S. chief executives reveals rising confidence among chief executives about business prospects, the U.S. economy and the positive potential of disruption. Results show that most have a positive outlook on economic growth over the next three years, and possess far greater confidence in the United States and in their companies than last year.
An increasing number of CEOs are getting more comfortable with rapid, technology-driven change, appreciating the value of disruption and the vast potential that accompanies it. In fact, six out of 10 CEOs now view technology as an opportunity, not a threat.
Nearly three quarters of CEOs surveyed say they are actively pursuing disruption in their own sectors, rather than waiting for competitors to do it. That’s a marked contrast from a year ago when two-thirds of CEOs in our 2016 survey admitted concern that their organizations were not disrupting business models in their industry.
Read KPMG's U.S. CEO Outlook 2017 for new CEO perspectives that indicate an uptick of positive trends emerging across a range of issues and industries.
