About KPMG Board Leadership Guidance

KPMG Board Leadership Guidance has been designed to offer support and guidance to non-executive directors, whether managing a portfolio non-executive career or embarking on a first board appointment.

Heading into 2024, companies face unprecedented disruption globally – trade and geopolitical tensions, economic volatility, persistent inflation and higher interest rates, technology and business model disruption, elevated cybersecurity risk, climate risk and more. Advances in artificial intelligence and heightened regulation also add to the challenge.

In this volatile operating environment, demands from key stakeholders for greater transparency, particularly around the oversight and management of risks to the company’s operations and strategy, continue to intensify.

Drawing on insights from our interactions with business leaders, we have highlighted issues to keep in mind as various committees within the board carry out their 2024 agendas.
