Excellence of Execution Is Again The Top Challenge of CEOs

According to a November 2008 study by The Conference Board, (as published in The AICPA Journal of Accountancy), when asked to rank their greatest challenge from a list of 94 challenges, the sample of CEOs chose "excellence of execution" as their top challenge - for the second year in a row.

Other findings:

  • 46.7% of survey participants—up from roughly half that (24.5%) in a summer survey of the same CEOs—were most concerned about speed, flexibility and the ability to adapt to change.
  • There were no people-management issues in the top 10 of the year-end survey
