8 Questions to Guide Healthcare CEOs' Strategic Decisions

Share on Facebook
Healthcare CEOs are facing unprecedented change in the industry today. To gauge how these leaders are planning to manage the disruption in healthcare, PricewaterhouseCoopers surveyed 90 healthcare CEOs in 27 countries as part of its 16th Annual Global CEO Survey.

In a report on the findings from the survey of healthcare CEOs, "Dealing with Disruption: How Healthcare CEOs Are Creating Resilient Organizations," PwC examines CEOs' growth strategies. "Deciding which processes and capabilities need to be global, regional and local isn't just about taking advantage of growth opportunities, though; it's also about developing the flexibility to survive disruptions, wherever they may surface," PwC wrote.

Based on the CEOs' feedback, PwC identified eight questions CEOs should ask when determining their strategy for the future:

1. How local is your global growth strategy?
2. How are you balancing global capabilities with local opportunities?
3. Is your talent strategy fit for growth?
4. Are your innovations creating value for your customers — or just novelty?
5. Do your strategic plans account for the macro impact of micro risks?
6. Are you responding to the needs and constraints of the communities in which you operate?
7. Where are the biggest opportunities for business and government to coordinate better?
8. Will your leadership pipeline deliver sustained growth today — and yield the next-generation of leaders tomorrow?
