Now accountable for a broader set of business metrics, CMOs emphasize how critical innovation is for their success and envision a future role of marketing as an agent of business transformation.

This report uncovers a new breed of CMOs – the Perceptive CMOs – who are more successful than their peers by calibrating their strategies at the intersection of where consumer wants and business needs overlap.
