PwC's 2015 Global Operations Survey: Australian insights
The core themes of our 2015 Global Operations Survey are echoed amongst Australian operations leaders. However, there are some important - and concerning - differences:
Of the top two most likely disruptive trends over the next five years, Australian COOs rank changes in industry regulation as the most disruptive, followed by changes in demand patterns, volatility and demographics. But only half expect disruption from increasing competition, compared to almost two-thirds in the US. And only 52% of Australia’s COOs expect disruption from changes in core technologies of production or service provision, compared to 60% globally and 71% in the US.
