YPO Global Pulse

The YPO Global Pulse survey focuses on what’s on the minds of chief executives around the world regarding topics that influence businesses and leadership and impact the world. For chief executives, being innovative is a constant challenge, no matter where a business is located or its industry. But as much as business leaders may embrace the idea of innovation, does their sense of urgency match their business reality?

The 2019 YPO Global Pulse aims to answer this critical question and more. The survey was conducted between 29 April and 6 May 2019 via an online questionnaire and gathered insights from 1,661 members across 105 countries and 34 industries.
