IMD Global Leader Index

Next Post Previous Post


The IMD Global Leader Index provides a quick way to compare your professional capabilities with global peers and identify opportunities for future leadership development.

Your Index results are calculated according to your responses to 48 survey questions as well as the professional profile you define, which indicates your global leadership level (i.e., your level of responsibility).

The survey addresses 16 competencies linked to high-performing global businesses*. Your responses to the survey are aggregated to four global leadership capabilities (strategic leadership, execution leadership, stakeholder leadership and personal leadership) and then compared to those of thousands of global executives at your level, who have completed the same survey**.

The results are presented as percentile ranks. The values do not indicate how good you are at your job, but rather how you compare to your peers in terms of the four global leadership capabilities. A value of 60, for example, means that your result is the same or higher than 60% of people at your level in the database. You’ll also see your strongest competencies within each of the global leadership capabilities.
