Meet your future C-suite execs. Leader­­ship in the corporate suite is in­creas­­ingly shared. Here are some new chiefs in the mix:

  1. chief security officer, to safeguard digital and physical operations;
  2. chief risk officer, to assess bets, protect against fraud and guard intellectual property;
  3. chief compliance officer, to make sure you stay in bounds;
  4. chief social media officer, to shape online presence;
  5. chief data officer, for big data.

— Adapted from “The Five Most Important C-Suite Execs Of The Future,” Debra Donston-Miller, Forbes.

A cautionary tale on change. Yahoo has sent a “corker of a memo” asking its employees to switch their email to the buffed-up Yahoo Mail. So far, only about a quarter of Yahoo employees have made the switch from Outlook. Yahoo execs need to ask themselves why even their own employees aren’t wild about the new mail program.

— Adapted from “Clinging to Outlook,” Kara Swisher, All Things D.

Another meeting? In one OfficeTeam poll, 45% of senior execs said their firms would be more productive if they banned all meetings at least one day a week.
