BCG CIO perspective 2018 - Where do large Swedish Corporations stand on digital

Carin Forsling

Digitization is a top priority for business leaders in all sectors and all functional domains. This is driven by the realization that in order to be a leader you need to become a digital leader. Businesses in the Nordic countries and potentially Sweden in particular, have had a strong starting-position given a combination of built-out infrastructure, digitally savvy population and a history of innovation and successful collaboration. However, our recent analysis on digital maturity shows that the Nordics is performing significantly lower than global average in both innovation ambition in developed strategies and realization of digital strategies. Therefore, BCG Sweden decided to conduct a study with the purpose of taking the temperature of digitization of large Swedish corporations to identify more granular actions needed for faster value realization.
