A provocative doctoral research on the factors influencing CEOs of U.S-based publicly traded companies in deviating from long-term strategies for short-term objectives.  The research was based on interviews with CEOs of companies ranging from $10 million to $12 billion in annual revenue.

It was found that most CEOs regarded internal organization issues as most detrimental to execution of long-term strategies.  Conversely, CEOs considered Wall Street expectations, SEC regulations, stock downtrends, and liabilities costly and time-consuming, but not detrimental to execution of long-term strategies.  Paradoxically, most CEOs still assigned first priority to shareholders over customers and employees by a large margin.

This set of internal factors and priorities assigned to external factors, is the conflicting dilemma, which hindered CEOs’ effective execution of long-term strategies.

Dr. Aaron Levy is the CEO/Founder of Emerging Transformational Ventures, a strategic business development firm specializing in organizational behavior, innovative products, marketing and media services, and the development and execution of effective strategies to achieve sustainable profitable growth.  A strategic transformational CEO, an innovative technologist, and a published author with cross-functional global operational experience, Dr. Levy started his career as a design engineer developing advanced detection devices for high energy cosmic physics research, designer of ATM card readers at Citicorp and rapidly rose to leadership roles as COO, president, CEO and director of several privately held and publicly traded companies with up to $125 million in annual sales as well as CEO of organizations with up to $1 billion in annual operation. In these roles, Dr. Levy designed, developed and marketed innovative products, led strategic turnarounds and organizational transformation, research and development, global sales, marketing and manufacturing.  Dr. Levy holds a PhD in Management with specialization in Leadership and Organizational Change, a Master and a Bachelors of Science in Engineering, both graduating with honors. He was an elected member of three Young President Organization (YPO) chapters since 1993, listed in Who’s Who, was Entrepreneur of the Year nominee (E&Y, 1998), and elected to honor societies such as Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Gamma Tau, and Eta Kappa Nu. A holder of a U.S patent for memory stacking manufacturing process (1999), Dr. Levy also authored Non-Impact Electronic Printing (1998), Digital Printing (2004), both published by Interquest.
