Today’s volatility and uncertainty demand that you identify the most transformative business trends before your competitors do. Three imperatives should rise to the top of the CEO priority list:

  • Secure the right forms of capital. Rising interest rates are just one complication as you seek the right forms of capital from the right sources at the right cost. Sources of funding are becoming more dispersed but also less geographically mobile. Human capital is also an area where supply-demand imbalances will require significant attention, requiring companies to look beyond the resume to understand how a candidate’s skills and experience might be applied in other settings.
  • Get closer to government. Understand the decisions and thinking of governments and public sector stakeholders, particularly in your home market and at local and multi-local levels. Core issues including labor practices, worker protections, anti-trust concerns, tax policies, and subsidies are becoming true battlegrounds as the state gets more involved in market affairs.
  • Build a future sensing capability. Monitor the right signals based on your industry, geography, and competitive position. These should encompass a wide range of sources and can include everything from patent filings to investment flows to job-creation data. Pair that analysis with an awareness of the three ways most trends unfold: gradually, catalytically, and virally.
