It looks, in particular, at what they’re doing to become more efficient, more forward-looking and more proficient at creating profitable growth.
The IBM C-suite Study is a result of analyzing our conversations with 4,183 leaders in 70 countries. We spoke with a cross-section of C-suite executives in more than 20 industries.
