The worlds Leading CEOs provide key insights for business success in the new economic environment.
More than twelve hundred of the worlds senior business executives, CEOs and public sector leaders have candidly contributed their latest insights and opinions to a new book, 'Rethinking the Enterprise: Insights from the Worlds Leading CEOs'.
The book starts by setting out the findings of IBMs third biennial Global CEO Study which draws on in-depth conversations with 1200+ business leaders, who represent a diverse range and scale of industries, territories and approaches.
The interviews took place during the most complex and difficult of economic times, when organizations faced not only just a global downturn, but concurrently an unprecedented - and fast accelerating - rate of change.
In their introductory chapter The Enterprise of the Future, editors Saul Berman, Peter Korsten and Ragna Bell of IBM note that organizations are now rethinking their strategy and business models, 'what value they deliver, where to compete, how to take advantage and how to position for leadership in the new environment'.
The editors analysis of any early 'winners' from the global financial crisis confirms three broad strategies: focus on value; exploit opportunities and act with speed.
Importantly, for all current or aspiring leaders and senior executives in Australian business and government, Rethinking the Enterprise highlights the necessary actions to implement these strategies successfully; and how to best set the stage for leadership in the new, emerging economic environment.
For more in-depth consideration and analysis of the challenges posed by this new environment, the editors have also selected the valuable perspectives of leading international business leaders from companies including IKEA, Publicis Groupe, Verizon, Li & Fung and Coca-Cola.
These critical 'advice' chapters are detailed yet easy-to absorb, including:
- Making change work: Closing the change gap
- The path forward: New models for customer-focused leadership
- The R-O-I of globally integrated operations: Strategies for enabling global integration
- Seizing the advantage: When and how to innovate your business model
- Leading a sustainable enterprise; Leveraging insight and information to act.
