40 CEO Success Stories

Top CEOs share their strategies and secrets for business success - compiled by The CEO Institute

It's lonely at the top - just ask any CEO. The buck stops at the CEO's desk and the leader's decisions spell business success or failure. It is a job without peer.

But there is one group who truly understand the challenges of leadership: other CEOs. In these business success stories , 40 CEOs tell how they have faced their biggest challenges, found solutions - and thrived.

These 40 concise case studies show CEOs how other leaders are dealing with the many management problems of today from staff retention to brand building and work-life balance.

Case Studies in Success

40 CEO Success Stories | Business Resource Centre | Business Books | Business Resources | Business Resource | Business Book | CEO Online Senior executives, entrepreneurs and business school students all share a common trait: the thirst for knowledge about how to run a better, more effective organisation. If you share that desire, this book is for you.

In the following pages, you will read how 40 Australian CEOs have tackled some of their most difficult business problems. We look at how the problem was affecting their busines, how they solved it, and what the outcome has been.

Each case study follows a very simple problem-solution-outcome format, making it easy for you to translate the learning to your own situation. Some of our CEOs are high profile; others quietly run superb small and medium-size operations that are growing fast. Either way, they are successful CEOs and entrepreneurs who have met and conquered some of the biggest challenges that face anyone with the top job.


These case studies first appeared on the IIDM website. IIDM members have enjoyed reading these and other case studies for almost a decade. Why? Because they provide candid insights about how CEOs have solved the problems that worry many business leaders. Here are a few examples:

  • In Growth Story a successful regional bookstore and music chain deals with the challenge of a giant global competitor opening across the road from its flagship store.
  • In Culture of Success one of Australia’s fastest-growing infrastructure services companies reveals how it finds and keeps good people in the tightest employment market in 40 years.
  • In Sick Puppy the new CEO of a well-known not-for-profit organisation realises that she has a problem when few of her staff can tell her who they report to or how they personally contribute to achieving their organisation’s goals. 

CEOs will love this book! We are sick of business "best sellers" full of hype and false hope.  Here you get a real problem, a real solution ... and a real result.  Warren Hart, Warren Hart & Associates

Superb practical advice and insights from CEOs and entrepreneurs who are at the frontline of today's business problems. You see how they faced and solved some of their toughest issues.  Cameron Poolman, Group Managing Director, GraysOnline

Packed with insights from CEOs who have used challenges to transform their organisations into leaner, smarter, better businesses.  Jill Weekes, CEO, Starlight Children's Foundation
