Oxford Economics Studie: Die Schlüssel zu einem erfolgreichen Unternehmenswachstum

Growth may be a good problem to have, but it is rarely easy. Heavier workloads, changing
processes, and unfamiliar regulations in a new market can add complexity for even the best-run enterprise during an expansion.

To understand how successful companies meet these challenges, SAP Concur and Oxford Economics surveyed 350 finance and IT executives around the world at large firms—those with more than 1,000 employees—that have launched a growth initiative in the past year. We found that clear visibility into spending across the organization, and careful attention to cash flow are pillars of successful growth. In this fact sheet we focus on responses from German businesses. Results show that enterprises in Germany are less cost-conscious than most enterprises, which leads to cost overruns. Breaking down  organizational silos should be a top goal for expanding German enterprises in order to ensure success.
