By almost any measure, your organization is facing its most challenging combination of economic, political, and environmental pressures it’s ever seen.

While 2020 was the year of the perfect storm, C-level executives (CXOs) expect to face even more of the unexpected. In a recent survey of 2,260 CXOs across global regions and industries, 60% of respondents said they anticipate occasional or regular disruptions to continue at the scale we’re now experiencing.

Still, facing disruption in real time can strengthen an organization’s readiness and resilience for the future. Before 2020, only 24% of CXOs said they felt ready to lead through disruptions; during the pandemic, that figure jumped to 34%.
