Governance Challenges: 2015

Governance Challenges: 2015 is the only publication of its type published by NACD. We ask our leading content partners—Heidrick & Struggles, KPMG’s Audit Committee Institute, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Pearl Meyer & Partners, and Sidley Austin—to provide their respective guidance on the areas they believe will present challenges in the coming year. This year’s submissions discuss imperatives for board leadership in a complex, changing environment. Themes include the importance of early engagement in discussions surrounding strategy, risk, and succession planning in the boardroom, as well as the need for proactive communication and engagement with shareholders and other stakeholders. Today, exemplary board leadership requires that directors maintain a steady eye on long-term corporate goals, while having an appreciation of the many issues that may be just around the corner. This publication will help directors be aware of these immediate issues.
