The Conference Board CEO Challenge® 2015: Creating Opportunity out of Adversity—Building Innovative, People-Driven Organizations (Strategic Overview)

Even in the face of modest, if disappointing, global economic growth, CEOs are undeterred in their quest for new sources of growth. They say a strong, aligned leadership cadre, a highly engaged workforce, improved organizational agility, a focus on customers, and building an entrepreneurial spirit around innovation are the tools they need to make headway in a slower-growth environment. As the top challenge for 2015, CEOs view Human Capital in all its forms—from dynamic leadership to a skilled workforce cadre—as the primary fuel that will drive the engines of growth within their organizations.

This report is based on 943 responses from CEOs, presidents, and chairmen to The Conference Board CEO Challenge survey, distributed between September and October 2014.
