The next three years will be challenging for CEOs. While their confidence about the growth of the economy remains high, they are less certain about prospects for their own organizations. This is a tough operating environment, with increased threats from both incumbent competitors and new entrants.

Top 4 Concerns Raised by CEOs in this survey:

  1. …new entrants disrupting our business model
  2. …keeping current with new technologies
  3. …competitors’ ability to take business away from our organization
  4. …my company’s products / services relevance three years from now

This report is based on a survey of 1,276 chief executives from Australia, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S. Nine
key industries are represented, including automotive, banking, insurance, investment management, healthcare, technology, retail/consumer markets and energy/utilities.

Three hundred forty-seven CEOs came from companies with revenues between US$500 million and US$999 million, 626 from companies with revenues from US$1 billion to US$9.9 billion, and 303 from companies with revenues of US$10 billion or more.

Eight hundred thirty CEOs came from public companies and 446 from private companies. The survey was conducted between April 22 and May 26, 2015.

“Maintaining status quo, while incredibly
comfortable, is the most risky thing you can do
in today’s world.” —Mark A. Goodburn, Global Head of Advisory, KPMG
