Driving Growth Through Digital Transformation

Discover how to overcome a slow pace of change by investing in your strategy, people, processes, and culture.

A sweeping survey of more than 500 leaders at companies in nearly every industry and size category by Chief Executive Group and Amazon Web Services reveals a sizable shortfall in the organizational behaviors needed to drive business growth in the digital age—as well as huge opportunities to learn and leapfrog the competition.

The vast majority of companies surveyed are yet to transform meaningfully to true data-driven cultures: a top-down approach to decision-making persists, with product-planning still the sole purview of senior leadership. The research instead suggests they may be stuck in the analysis phase—trying to figure out the best way forward vs. making progress. Access the full report Driving Growth Through Digital Transformation to see what we learned and how your organization could benefit.

Perhaps the biggest question to emerge from the research is the one that’s proven the hardest to answer: Why, despite a decade or more of effort, are so many companies still lagging when it comes to digital transformation?  

  1. A lag in using data to better understand customers.
  2. Centralized, top-down decision-making that slows innovation.
  3. Gaps in investment in both technology and talent.

Read the report and learn how to overcome these hurdles and drive growth.


The data shows many CEOs think they are on a path to digital transformation, when they have barely begun, likely because they remain unclear about what it actually takes to transform or to 'be digital.' There is no one-size-fits-all answer.”

Generative AI is the Answer: What Was the Question?

Generative AI is not just a buzzword, but a game-changing technology on par with historical innovations like the printing press and electricity. Join AWS Enterprise Strategists Tom Godden, Phil Le-Brun, and Miriam McLemore, as they discuss how to harness the power of generative AI for value-driven outcomes.
