C-Suite Challenge 2019: The Future-Ready Organization

January 16, 2019 | Report

Balancing long-term vision and short-term performance is the number one hallmark for future organizational success in 2025, CEOs say. The danger in a slowing economy is succumbing to the temptation to skimp on both time and resource investment in the digital future to boost short-term results, jeopardizing future competitiveness.

When senior executives paint the picture of what the organization of the future looks like, what emerges is an archetype of a company that puts the customer at the center, reshapes the way we work, and achieves the elusive balance between short-term goals and long-term vision. Reaching this ideal requires a comprehensive, holistic approach. In this year’s C-Suite Challenge™ survey, CEOs and C-suite executives outline their concerns about what lies ahead and their vision for how their organizations will thrive in 2025 and beyond.
