If you made a list of the biggest challenges you face in leading your organization, what would be on it?  Now, scanning that list, what are the chances that one or more of your peers, somewhere around the world, has made substantial progress at solving those challenges?  In our experience, the changes are very good - and we should know!

The Corporate Executive Board Company (CEB) has more than 25 years of experience identifying the best practice solutions to the most pressing business challenges that the world's leading executives have wrestled with.
