Over the years I have conducted many surveys of business and technology professionals, and the one consistent insight across all these surveys is a high level scepticism that leaders will make the necessary decisions and act fast enough to compete effectively. I understand that. Most failures can be directly traced back to either bad decisions or a lack of decisions by leaders, but I also have great sympathy for them. Leading through rapid market evolutions and disruptions is difficult in the best of times, but when you throw in fast changing consumer behaviors, supply chain disruptions, technology advancements and global pandemics it’s just unfair. There are, however, some great insights and wisdom that can be gleaned from all the surveys I have reviewed and research I have participated in. I put together the following list that I hope you will find useful.
