LEADING THE MOMENTOUS CHANGE: a survey on Innovation, Digital Transformation and Sustainability leaders


In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, companies are constantly engaged in transformative processes. Navigating the intricate pathways of innovation, digital transformation, and sustainability requires high-level leadership and a profound understanding of these topics.

To deepen our knowledge about contemporary trends, the Institute of Transformative Innovation Research (ITIR) – University of Pavia, in collaboration with StartupItalia! and Fondazione Sostenibilità Digitale is launching an impactful research project (head of the project: Prof. Stefano Denicolai).

The research aims to identify current trends, future perspectives, and best practices among C-Levels and top managers who are leading the way in innovation, sustainability transition, and digital transformation, regardless of their job title. The results of this research will not only contribute to academic literature but also provide practical recommendations for executives handling these transformative challenges.

We are looking for…

  • Managers who have the highest level of decision-making authority within their organizations when it comes to innovation, digital transformation, or sustainability.
  • This includes those in ‘Chief X Officer’ positions such as Chief Innovation Officer, Chief Digital Officer, Chief Sustainability Officer, or similar roles like Head of Innovation or Digital Transformation.
  • In the absence of such designated roles, we welcome the insights of CEOs or other high-ranking executives who have a clear understanding of their company’s strategies in these areas.

The Benefits of Participating

Participating in this research project offers several benefits:

  • In-depth Insights: You will receive a comprehensive report of our findings, providing more depth than the publicly available summary.
  • Networking Opportunities: As a participant, you have the option to join a community of professionals in similar roles, fostering the exchange of knowledge and best practices.
  • Exclusive Access to extra resources: Gain access to additional resources related to innovation, sustainability transition, and digital transformation, developed by our research center.

Your voice matters

Your unique perspective is valuable and can greatly enrich our research. If you fit the criteria and are interested in participating, please fill out the questionnaire.

We sincerely thank you for considering this opportunity. Your insights will greatly contribute to our understanding of the transformative processes that businesses are currently navigating, and in turn, help shape a more sustainable and digitally advanced future.
