PwC and Forbes surveyed how CEOs view prospects for the business environment in Slovakia. One of the key messages arising from our recent CEO survey is cooperation and collaborative partnerships. It's a trend that we witness in the world as well as in Slovakia. Companies have begun to realise that their energy should be focused primarily on those areas where there are good at and where they are the top performers. They are supporting the non-core parts of their business through partnerships with various groups of business.
It is also fascinating to watch the ‘disruptors’ and their impact on traditional industries. As we see a continual fierce fight for customers whose behaviour in today's digital age is changing dramatically, the traditional business models are changing as well. Innovation and the desire for growth are driving companies into sectors they previously did not operate in.
Another key topic is technology. Organisations realise, that digital advance is unstoppable and that it relates to all players in all markets. Therefore, it is essential to keep pace with it.
