We surveyed 370 business leaders from consumer products (CP) companies to explore how they’re changing their operating models — and whether those efforts will be sufficient to lead to future success.
The vast majority of survey respondents view operational transformation as an urgent priority, and most of those already have change initiatives underway. But the survey findings also indicate that these companies must address key challenges to ensure that those initiatives actually reach their goals.
This infographic highlights the research findings and provides advice for CP organizations to consider as they make their own transformation journeys.
