Boards struggle on risk management; savvy on strategy

Boards of companies struggle to understand and make time to manage business risk, despite directors spending more time on company strategy than they were doing in 2011, says a recent McKinsey study.

Boards of companies struggle to understand and make time to manage business risk, despite directors spending more time on company strategy than they were doing in 2011, says a recent McKinsey study.
