Insomnia Index

What CEOs are saying

Insomnia IndexIn recent years there have been unprecedented changes globally. Much progress has been made in technologically driven industries like telecommunications but other sectors, for example banking, were significantly affected. While many western nations have been impacted by the recent global financial crisis and economic slowdown, some emerging economies have weathered the storm and are perceived to have thrived.

Amidst these tumultuous circumstances, business leaders find themselves having to develop strategies to harness success. For this rapidly changing environment, Deloitte has developed the Insomnia Index, a dynamic and interactive survey tool that can keep pace with the needs of business leaders by delivering time efficient results.

The Insomnia Index strives to capture the views of a closed but diverse range of business leaders from various companies and industries. The aim is to gather impressions of opportunities and challenges that are perceived as the most pressing in business at a particular time. Findings from the Insomnia Index help business leaders to reflect on the unexpected, look for relevant solutions and perform with more agility, making it possible to deliver greater value to their shareholders, sooner.
