What will the Enterprise of the Future look like? To answer that question, IBM and the Economist Intelligence Unit spoke with more than 1,000 CEO’s from around the world.

These findings across industries, geographies and organizations of different sizes paint a similar view of the traits that we believe will be needed for future success.

In its executive summary, the study notes that at its core, the Enterprise of the Future is

  • Hungry for Change
    The Enterprise of the Future is capable of changing quickly and successfully. Instead of merely responding to trends, it shapes and leads them. Market and industry shifts are a chance to move ahead of the competition.
  • Innovative Beyond Customer Imagination
    The Enterprise of the Future surpasses the expectations of increasingly demanding customers. Deep collaborative relationships allow it to surprise customers with innovations that make both its customers and its own business more successful.
  • Globally Integrated
    The Enterprise of the Future is integrating to take advantage of today’s global economy. Its business is strategically designed to access the best capabilities, knowledge and assets from wherever they reside in the world and apply them wherever required in the world.

  • Disruptive By Nature
    The Enterprise of the Future radically challenges its business model, disrupting the basis of competition. It shifts the value proposition, overturns traditional delivery approaches and, as soon as opportunities arise, reinvents itself and its entire industry.
  • Genuine, Not Just Generous
    The Enterprise of the Future goes beyond philanthropy and compliance and reflects genuine concern for society in all actions and decisions.
