Deloitte CFO Survey of the Leading Companies in Russia
Key trends. Summer 2017
In 2017 various sectors of the Russian economy demonstrated a robust recovery. However, there is always a possibility that changes, including positive ones, will be followed by unexpected events and outcomes. Knowing this, companies show growing interest in advanced management techniques, strategic management tools and approaches to their implementation.
It is no secret that automation and implementation of new technologies both in production and management areas remain the most discussed topics. The digitalization and new generation of information technologies drastically changed the operating modes of leading companies, even in traditional, conservative industries such as banking (e.g., about one-third of Goldman Sachs’ staff are computer engineers). The future has already arrived. Our latest research on the financial climate in Russia focuses on business transformation that has already occurred or is expected to take place as a result of innovative development.
Expert opinions enabled us to identify the most popular technologies in Russia, as well as to evaluate the economic impact on business in various industrial groups. We are pleased to present the complete version of our analytical report. The key conclusions were presented at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum held from 1-3 June 2017.
