The Directors' Toolkit

The Directors' Toolkit

Our business environment provides an ever-changing spectrum of risks and opportunities. The role of the director continues to be shaped by a multitude of forces including economic uncertainty, larger and more complex organisations, the increasing pace of technological innovation and digitisation along with a more rigorous regulatory environment. At the same time there is more onus on directors to operate transparently and be more accountable for their actions and decisions. To support directors in their challenging role, KPMG has created an interactive Directors’ Toolkit.
