Despite a weak global economy, The Conference Board CEO Challenge® 2015 survey shows that CEOs are staying focused on seeking high-quality, sustainable business growth – adopting a longer-term focus on capacity building and development of strong cultures of innovation, engagement, and accountability within their organizations.
