Our survey respondents confirmed the massive changes occurring across industries worldwide, as well as technology's influence on consumers. For example, 75% of global business, government, and higher education leaders believe that consumer buying behavior is shifting from a strictly product/service basis to an experience basis. 85% indicate competition is coming from new and unexpected sources, and 67% say that traditional boundaries between industries are blurring as industries are reshaped. As a result, many business leaders believe their structures and processes need to change too.
