Board to CFO: Need Better Risk Management Data NOW!

June 22, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

The buzz: At risk.

Recent research and surveys suggest that enterprise boards of directors and CEOs want, need, and are demanding more and better information on enterprise risk management from the CFO and Office of Finance. It’s becoming so urgent that some boards are starting to exercise an oversight role.

Reality check: A serious gap persists between what the CFO is delivering and what the business requires. Could this put CFOs at risk, too?

The experts speak.

Elvia Novak, Deloitte: “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” (T.S. Eliot, American poet, 1888-1965)

Bruce McCuaig, SAP: “Getting the right thing wrong is better than putting the wrong thing right … Most of our current problems are the result of policy makers and managers busting a gut to do the wrong thing right…” (Russell Ackoff, 1919-2009 – American management guru and Anheuser-Bush Professor Emeritus of Management Science at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania)
