Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

CEOs provide leadership that instills confidence in the company’s people and investors. Make the right choices, and your business will thrive. Make the wrong choices, and you may be looking for another job. From investments, restructuring and strategy to keeping costs and risk in check, CEOs set the course when it matters most.

Deloitte’s deep knowledge across industries, issues and markets can help CEOs make the right choices. We’ve supported leading companies around the world, analyzing their most pressing problems and tackling their toughest challenges. Here are some things we’ve learned along the way.

  • Strategies for going public: The changing landscape for IPOs
    The market for Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) has never been more complex or challenging than it is today. This publication takes away some of the mystery and uncertainty around the process. It serves as a useful guide as you begin your IPO journey.
  • The price of pricing effectiveness
    Great companies do pricing very well and reap the rewards. For those that don’t, however, establishing or broadening these capabilities can be a complex, risky and sometimes costly investment that requires specific skills and commitment on the part of leadership. Research suggests measures that can reduce that risk and position a company more advantageously with regard to pricing as a strategic tool.
  • Pulling ahead vs. catching up
    To pull away from the pack one needs to break performance trade-offs by getting better in several ways at once. The struggle for greatness, however, is far more complex and subtle. Prevailing over capable adversaries requires accepting and exploiting trade-offs and very often seeking an advantage in only a very small number of very carefully identified ways, while frequently accepting a performance disadvantage along other dimensions.
  • Growth through M&A
    Mergers and acquisitions can be a potent path to growth. Yet implementation complexities and the lure of immediate cost synergies often take precedence over formulating, isolating and tracking revenue metrics and growth efforts. Cost reduction goals can even conflict with revenue growth opportunities. An analysis of 100 deals with growth as the stated goal suggests a set of priorities that can produce better outcomes.
