According to the latest global research from Workday, 81% of CEOs believe that their company’s approach to strategy enables them to respond to external market shifts—but their direct reports aren’t so sure. The study “Organizational Agility at Scale: The Key to Driving Digital Growth,” conducted by Longitude, surveyed almost 1,000 business leaders across Asia, Europe, and North America. We found a distinct perception gap between the CEO and other senior leaders: across five key pillars of organizational agility, CEOs are most likely to positively rate their organization’s progress towards agility in comparison to the views of other C-suite leaders.
The research focused on how organizations can translate their digital transformation investments into the right business outcomes. The findings highlight a strong correlation between digital revenue growth and organizational agility—a set of behaviors that help leading businesses drive digital revenue growth and shift digital transformation from a one-time event to an ongoing, new way of operating.
