Trends by Industry: Consumer Goods

Each year, Business Talent Group releases the High-End Independent Talent Report, looking across industries and business functions to analyze how business leaders deploy top independent talent to fill critical skill, expertise, and leadership gaps. Here are the key consumer goods trends for 2022.

In 2022, consumer goods leaders must remain nimble and proactive in the face of continued uncertainty, changing consumer behaviors, supply disruptions, and workforce concerns. It's no surprise then that supply chain, growth strategy, and business processes displaced advanced analytics, planning, and interim leadership for the most in-demand projects from consumer goods companies.
