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.

Twenty nine per cent of the respondents say their boards have limited or no understanding of the risks their companies face and spend just 12 per cent of their time on risk management, according to the ‘McKinsey global survey on governance’.
