November 2016

Leadership matters, now more than ever.

Strategic transformations—marked by the collision of technological breakthroughs, financial crises, demographic shifts, and other global forces—continue to make waves across industries. And yet, research shows a shocking deficit of capable captains. In a recent survey of 6,000 senior executives, only 8 percent identified themselves as strategic leaders. Over the past four years, more than 22% of incoming CEOs at the largest 2,500 publicly traded companies were hired from outside. The only way to manage disruptions and innovate for the future is to plan strategically. Here at Strategy&, we’re committed to helping you identify your capabilities, so you can successfully connect strategy and execution to win in the market. Of all the valuable content we’ve produced in the past several months, these are the top five insights we believe are worth your time.
