2021 is a year of large-scale digital transformation not only for businesses, but also for many, if not all, processes in the state - partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and also in general, due to the common global trends. States compete with each other not only in the field of building an effective digital public administration (their typical scenarios such as super services, registry models, areas of application of artificial intelligence, have already appeared), but also in the field of digital transformation of the economy sectors. Russian Federation is faced with the task of increasing its competitiveness in the global market, also by means planning tools and implementing of digital transformation strategies.
Issues for discussion:
• What are the challenges for managing the planning and implementation of digital transformation strategies in Russia?
• How can we change the lives of citizens for the better through implementation of the digital strategies?
• How has COVID-19 impacted the existing digital transformation strategies, what has changed and will change?
