91% of CEOs do not think their business is prepared for regulatory risk
59% of CEOs say maintaining an innovation portfolio will be a top business development priority in five years
63% of respondents highlighted increasing project complexity as the top challenge expected in the next five years
75% of respondents thought their business was unprepared to manage the risk of talent shortages
