As part of KPMG's Spring Director Roundtable Series, Pat Bryant participated on a panel discussing key considerations and questions shaping boardroom conversations in the current political environment. The broad impact of political change requires companies to carefully consider the range of policy initiatives—tax reform, infrastructure investment, regulatory easing, trade policy and more—that may impact their business strategies, risk profiles and operations. Corporate and board culture play a key role in how organizations develop strategies to manage these significant and fast moving changes. The panelists looked at questions like:
- How does corporate culture impact the board agenda in identifying, discussing and addressing significant political and social change? Which policy and social initiatives may have the greatest impact (positive or negative) on the business?
- How is management assessing the shifting corporate culture and potential impact of these initiatives on the company’s critical strategy and risk assumptions? On investment and growth plans?
- Does the company have the right level of focus and resources devoted to the effort—and the flexibility to calibrate its strategy and adjust operations quickly?
