So what is keeping CEOs up at night?  And what do they see as essential to creating a high-performing organization and driving profitability in the coming year?

  1. Improve organizational agility
  2. Seek better alignment between strategy, objectives and organizational capabilities
  3. Raise employee engagement to drive productivity
  4. Redesign business processes
  5. Continual improvement (lean six sigma, etc.)
