- Less than 40% of companies believe that their business leaders are equipped to harness and lead digitization.
- Most chief information officers (CIOs) feel that the digital agenda should be theirs by default, but in reality fewer than 35% of today's CIOs are expected to be tasked with leading digital transformation.
- Many chief marketing officers (CMOs) also make a persuasive case to own and drive the digital agenda but the scope of digital will inevitably extend well beyond their remit and into functions such as R&D and the supply chain.
- As a result, many firms have hired or are considering hiring a chief digital officer (CDO), and that directly impacts the dynamics of the top team.
