Benchmark board best-practices on risks and update to the latest risk thinking

The risks businesses are facing today are enormous: from geopolitical risks, to social evolution, to technological progress to growth risk to many others. High-quality risk knowledge helps the board to focus on the significant issues facing the organization and to provide adequate risk guidance.

Risk awareness and supervision are among the central duties of an effective board, yet despite this important risk mission, many boards do not have a systematic risk approach.

IMD’s Boards and Risks program is an opportunity for board members to develop this approach and to upgrade to best-in-class risk work while differentiating it from executive risk thinking.
