In its 2010 Global CEO Study, IBM finds that most chief executives say creativity will be key in handling economic uncertainty.
"Coming out of the worst economic downturn in our professional lifetimes -- and facing a new normal that is distinctly different -- it is remarkable that CEOs identify creativity as the number one leadership competency of the successful enterprise of the future," said Frank Kern, senior vice president, IBM Global Business Services "But step back and think about it, and this is entirely consistent with the other top finding in our Study -- that the biggest challenge facing enterprises from here on will be the accelerating complexity and the velocity of a world that is operating as a massively interconnected system."
The surveyed CEOs acknowledged current economic uncertainties and said that industry transformation is the leading reason for this uncertainty, more than 60 percent of the CEOs said.
