Covid-19, trade conflicts, climate protection and political uncertainties are keeping the economy in suspense. At the same time, many companies expect new growth once the crisis has been overcome. However, these positive future prospects are assessed very differently depending on the industry.

Some progress has already been made during the pandemic in terms of digital transformation, business model realignment and customer focus, but they remain at the heart of corporate strategy. Necessary cost reductions combined with a simultaneous increase in the willingness to invest are a permanent challenge.

As a CFO, you have to face this tension in creative ways and at the same time keep a cool head. Discuss with thought leaders and get inspiration.
