The Boardroom and Risk, a report from London-based think tank Tomorrow's Company, shows how boards can better understand their risk exposure and make sure their organisation is as resilient as possible.
In the last few years boards have become increasingly aware of the need to effectively manage risk. But even with this renewed focus, boards may be blind to some key risks or fail to understand them as deeply as they need to.
Research has identified a key group of risks that go beyond traditional risk management analysis. In an ever more complex business environment coupled with increasing expectations of corporate behaviour, it is vital that boards are able to address strategic risk issues.
