The 2011 Chief Marketing Officer Study is part of IBM's Global C-suite Studies Program. Over the last seven years, IBM has conducted more than 15,000 face-to-face interviews with CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, CHROs and CSCOs to provide an in-depth understanding of what is going on in boardrooms, professions and industries.
This is our first CMO Study and we are delighted to share it with you. We interviewed more than 1,700 CMOs worldwide for the 2011 CMO Study and analyzed their responses. This assessment tool presents a subset of those questions and compares your responses to theirs. Comparisons are provided to the global sample, your industry sample and your region sample.
At the conclusion of the assessment, you will be given an opportunity to view your results, print your assessment report, get a copy of the Study and ask an IBM subject matter expert to contact you to discuss the Study and your results.
We hope you find this tool interesting and the Study illuminating.
