DISRUPTION IS THE NEW ECONOMIC DRIVER
Disruption isn’t new, but the pace at which it’s forcing change is accelerating. The magnitude of its impact is growing, and the sheer complexity and cumulative impact of the interconnected forces confronting business leaders have never been greater.
Our ongoing research showed how even though CEOs are confronted by disruption today more than they ever have been, the pandemic wasn't one of their top concerns. From technological innovations to shifts in consumer behaviors to changing regulatory landscapes, business leaders are grappling with multiple, concurrent forces that are upending how they do business.
