Manufacturing Innovation Survey Report: Chicagoland

In late 2015, we surveyed over 380 C-suite level and senior leaders in the U.S. manufacturing sector, including a significant number of companies that were headquartered in the Chicago area. This research presents the findings of our analysis from Chicago, providing an insight into the specific opportunities and challenges facing the region’s manufacturers.

Participants included:
  • CEOs
  • COOs
  • CFOs
  • CIOs
  • chief marketing officers
  • chief sales officers
  • heads of R&D
  • and other senior executives

Key findings include:
  • A confidence amongst Chicagoland manufacturers of their ability to compete and succeed in a disruptive environment
  • An appetite that exceeds peers to embrace business model change
  • A majority who believe their financial performance exceeds peer companies
