The past two years have presented relentless challenges for business and technology leaders, not least COVID-19, soaring inflation and interest rates, supply chain challenges and even recent political instability. It’s no wonder then that business and technology leaders say they’re struggling to keep up with the rapid pace of change and uncertainty that has become the new norm.

In this volatile and unpredictable operating environment, Chief Disruptor believes it's never been more important to access the latest market insights, to help businesses plan, prioritise and pivot for the year ahead. 

Helping Chief Disruptor members deliver and demonstrate business value with The 2023 Disruptive Trends Report.

The 2023 Disruptive Trends Report is the trusted, annual, go-to guide to help inform business and technology investment priorities in the year ahead. Based on survey responses gathered from over 400 business leaders across a wide range of industry sectors and remits, the results reveal the inside track on the latest disruptive trends and technologies that should be at the forefront of everyone’s business and technology plans for the year ahead. This year the report also explores the impact of wider external market challenges on business and technology investments and evaluates the impact a disruption strategy, mindset and technologies can have in this challenging operating environment.
