The DNA of the COO
"The DNA of the COO" provides long-awaited insight into what it takes to be a chief operating officer (COO) today by exploring the expectations and aspirations of those in the job along with the skills and relationships that they need to master in order to succeed. The program addresses aspects of personal interest to COOs as they seek to develop themselves and their teams, and learn from others within their community.
The report is based on a survey of more than 300 senior operational professionals worldwide. A further 43 respondents from across the rest of the C-suite were polled to provide a perspective on how the COO is perceived by the rest of the executive management team.
