Share Article

Research by Kapta shows that CEOs are dis-satisfied with the performance of their executive teams and lack confidence that employees are full on-board with the company’s strategy.



Do you control your company or does your company control you? Our research shows that many CEOs don’t have the tools needed to fully manage their businesses.

Kapta, a real-time strategy execution and goal alignment system for businesses, has released an infographic with details of over 300 interviews with CEOs conducted between July 2012 and July 2013. This data sheds light on the major concerns of Chief Executive Officers around the US and UK.

Kapta’s research includes the following information:

  • 64 percent of CEOs interviewed said they do not have full control over their company’s direction
  • 45 percent of the CEOs interviewed were not satisfied with their executive team’s performance
  • Only 22 percent of CEOs interviewed have confidence that their employees are fully aligned behind the company’s strategy

“There are lots of things that CEOs worry about,” said Alex Raymond, Kapta CEO. “What surprised us in our research was how little CEOs feel like they have control over their companies. It’s like the old adage – do you control your company or does your company control you? Our research shows that many CEOs don’t have the tools needed to fully manage their businesses.”
