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. We will discuss the shifts in top challenges over time and some of the differences between major global regions.
