Shanghai, October 26, 2017 – Annual worldwide corporate R&D spending broke through $700bn in annual investment, according to an annual analysis of R&D spending across 1000 global public companies by PwC’s Strategy&.
17 May, 2017 — The share of CEOs forced out of office for ethical lapses has been on the rise, according to the 2016 CEO Success study released today by Strategy&, PwC’s strategy consulting business. The study, which analyzed CEO successions at the world’s largest 2,500 public companies over the past 10 years, reports that forced turnovers due to ethical lapses rose from 3.9 percent of all successions in 2007–11 to 5.3 percent in 2012–16 — a 36 percent increase, due in large part to increased public scrutiny and accountability of executives.
Shanghai, October 26, 2016 – By 2020, companies will have shifted the majority of their R&D spending away from physical product-based offerings to digital offerings—software and service, according to the 2016 Global Innovation 1000 Study from Strategy&, PwC’s strategy consulting business. The need to stay competitive is the top reason why companies cited a shift in their R&D budgets towards software and services, and for good reason – according to the study, companies who reported faster revenue growth relative to key competitors allocated 25 percent more of their R&D budgets to software offerings than companies who reported slower revenue growth.
