Global Pulse Survey 2015 – Calibrating strategy & risk: A board’s eye view

Global Pulse Survey 2015 – Calibrating strategy & risk

KPMG surveyed more than 1,000 directors and senior executives internationally to better understand how boards are helping their company’s calibrate strategy and risk. Our survey explored where boards are deepening their engagement and where the biggest challenges and concerns exist. Our research suggests that while many boards are clearly stepping up their game, significant challenges remain.

Global Pulse Survey 2015 – Calibrating strategy & risk: A board’s eye view

Key findings:

  • Boards continue to deepen their involvement in strategy and its execution
  • Linking strategy and risk effectively continues to elude many boards 
  • Better risk information and access to expertise remain top of mind
  • Cyber security may require further expertise, more attention from the full board and potentially a new committee
  • Oversight of key strategic and operational risks could be more effectively communicated among the board and its committees. 

We hope our findings and observations, from interviews and interaction with directors, are helpful as you assess and calibrate your company’s approach to strategy and risk.
