What can business leaders learn from this research?
Vittorio Colao, CEO of Vodafone International writes: “Knowing how CEOs spend their time can tell us a lot about management styles and, ultimately, it could help us analyze differences in cultures and performances. I also believe that the study can be extremely beneficial for the CEOs themselves. Personally, when I heard about your work, I felt the need to get data on my own time use and I decided to analyze the last six months of my agenda.”
Is the data confidential?
Absolutely. We will never divulge the identity of individual participants, nor will we provide enough information to identify, directly or indirectly, the companies they work for. All data collected is saved in anonymous form in password protected servers at the Harvard Business School.
How many CEOs have you surveyed so far?
Over 1200 CEOs have participated to this project in medium and large companies based in Britain, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Italy, the United States, and other countries.
