The world’s economy has entered the 4th Industrial Revolution, characterized by the integration of smart, connected, and autonomous digital and physical technologies (such as the internet of things, robotics, autonomous vehicles, 3D printing, etc.) that drive business operations, processes, and production. This survey explored how CXOs are navigating this new world and the steps they are taking to set their organizations on a path towards future success.

Key Takeaways

CXOs are not routinely taking a strategic and holistic view of the various dimensions, implications, and opportunities presented by the 4th Industrial Revolution.

CXOs should focus on how technology can disrupt their organization & consider investing in new skills that meet the expectations of their customers/constituents, employees, and society.

Organizations and the CXOs that lead them do not regularly prioritize, or recognize, the role they play as co-architects/influences of society.
