About the Research

The Digital Business Global Executive Study and Research Project, conducted by MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte, found that digitally maturing organizations encourage distributed leadership and a healthy appetite for experimentation. An analysis of the findings was published in the 2018 research report, “Coming of Age Digitally: Learning, Leadership, and Legacy.”

These interactive charts explore how survey respondents say digital trends are transforming their organizations. Use the industry, region, and company age filters to see how your company measures up.

Digital Maturity
We asked respondents to “imagine an ideal organization transformed by digital technologies and capabilities that improve processes, engage talent across the organization, and drive new value-generating business models.” We then asked respondents to rate their company against that ideal on a scale of 1 to 10. Three maturity groups were observed: “early” (1-3), “developing” (4-6), and “maturing” (7-10). Read the full report to learn more about digital maturity.

About the Data

To understand the challenges and opportunities associated with the use of social and digital business, MIT Sloan Management Review, in collaboration with Deloitte, conducted its seventh annual survey of more than 4,300 business executives, managers, and analysts from organizations around the world.

The survey, conducted in the fall of 2017, captured insights from individuals in 123 countries and 28 industries, from organizations of various sizes. More than two-thirds of the respondents were from outside of the United States. The sample was drawn from a number of sources, including MIT Sloan Management Review readers, Deloitte Dbriefs webcast subscribers, and other interested parties. In addition to our survey results, we interviewed business executives and experts from a number of industries and academia to understand the practical issues facing organizations today. Their insights contributed to a richer understanding of the data.
