EXECUTIVE OUTLOOK 2013 - LEADING FOR INNOVATION AND SUSTAINING GROWTH  

EOS 2013 Leadership


The findings of our annual C-suite survey are in. This year, we spoke with 179 executives in a broad range of industries across the globe. We asked them about their views on innovation and how they plan to sustain growth amid ongoing economic uncertainty. 

What they told us was that company culture was their key focus for the year. And, that for many, the main barriers to innovation and agility are those that are embedded within their organisational culture. In fact, C-suite executives appear to be just as focused on the cultural aspects of organisational innovation and change as they are on implementing new technology and creating new products.

While this initially surprised us, it also reminded us of the critical nature of talent in an uncertain economic environment. We know that competitiveness is not just about great products and efficient processes—it’s about people. And it seems that after four-plus years of global economic turmoil, many leaders are again recognising that their employees’ attitudes are critical to business success.
We are pleased to share the thoughts and insights of these business leaders in more detail throughout this report.
