Insights

Growth in the new normal
Alan Martinovich, Petter Kilefors, Barnik Chitran Maitra, Hariprasad Pichai, Bill Reeves
As challenging as the current economic headwinds may be, many of these forces are likely short-term idiosyncrasies of the post-COVID-19 economic recovery. We believe that several longer-term and even accelerating economic mega-trends will undoubtedly have a profound impact on the global economy in the next five years and must be addressed with immediate and serious executive attention. In this Viewpoint, we cover four global growth mega-trends: 
BYE-BYE COMFORT ZONE, WELCOME VUCA
Petter Kilefors, Martin Glaumann, Alan Martinovich, Barnik Chitran Maitra, Hariprasad Pichai, Rebecka Axelsson Wadman, Alan Martinovich
NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME TO PUT GROWTH ON AGENDA As the global vaccination campaign continues, companies are preparing for the post-COVID-19 economic rebound to rebuild their financial strength and recover ground that they have lost during the COVID recession. Simultaneously, they must also respond to drivers and trends that the pandemic has either induced or significantly accelerated. They must balance the demand surge and digitalization tailwind against supply shortages.
Electric buses
Petter Kilefors, Alexander Ovanesov, Rodolfo Guzman, Dr. Ninghua Song
Electric buses are expected to be more efficient and greener than diesel buses, and key to making cities more environmentally friendly. Every city must carefully choose its individual solution for its bus fleet, and OEMs have to be ready to mirror the local requirements by understanding the needs of both PTOs and PTAs.
Dematerialized ticketing
Mickael Tauvel, François-Joseph Van Audenhove, Vincent Bamberger, Petter Kilefors
Transport authorities and mass transit operators should consider dematerialization of ticketing for increased resilience and to pave the way for Mobility-as-a-Service in a post-Covid world
Blockchain in transport – Awaiting the breakthrough
Petter Kilefors, Dr. Fabian Doemer, Philipp Mudersbach
Blockchain seems the perfect solution for the complex, decentralized supply chains of the transport sector, but results to date have been disappointing. In this article, we analyze the latest global research with industry executives and use the findings to determine what needs to happen for the technology to reach its potential.
