Global Leadership Forecast 2018

Global Leadership Forecast 2018—a three-way collaboration with DDI, The Conference Board, and EY—is the eighth Forecast since DDI began the stream of research in 1999. It’s also one of the most expansive leadership research projects ever conducted. This report summarizes dozens of practical, evidence-based recommendations for critical business issues. These range from digital transformation to gender and generational diversity to the roles of purpose and culture in building an effective, sustainable leadership strategy for a digital age.

The research integrates data from 25,812 leaders and 2,547 HR professionals across 2,488 organizations. Not only are these perspectives numerous, but they are also diverse and highly representative of the business context facing global enterprises. The research, which spans more than 1,000 C-level executives and 10,000 high-potential employees, includes 54 countries and 26 major industry sectors.
