Risk, cost, profitability
The CEO's goals of stability, confidence and growth have been at odds with the recent pandemic of uncertainty. CEOs have focussed on driving out cost by reducing headcount, eliminating spend and selling assets.
With a return to growth, CEOs will start investing in innovation and finding ways to finance growth whilst staying prepared for volatility. Compliance and climate challenges are high on the agenda.
As well as technical and commercial agility, it's vital that a CEO maintains trust and support in times of reinvention - with customers, with staff, and with the supply chain.
There are trends within our customer community. In the past, plans for ICT investment would be signed off by IT leaders, but today this authorisation tends to lie with the board. Everything needs a business case with a clear ROI path mapped against the CEO's objectives.
CEOs need to prioritise investments according to return, a task made more difficult when every department is trying to make their priorities "a CEO agenda item".
Central to the CEO strategy is getting to the heart of what customers want, then delivering it with minimum risk, at minimum cost for maximum profitability.
