2019 Directors’ Alert

Taking the long-term view

Boards are uniquely positioned to oversee the long-term vision of an organization. Yet, many boards and executive teams are often tempted to focus on the short term. How can boards inject long-term thinking into their oversight role? Hear from Deloitte business leaders and non-executive directors on how boards can apply a long-term lens to their oversight role in an age of disruption and uncertainty.

Deloitte's 10th edition of Directors' Alert covers the following topics:

  • Recognizing how industry 4.0 will impact the long term
  • Identifying how organizations can better engage with investors – and activists
  • Understanding how organizations can re-imagine their ESG impacts
  • Navigating tax strategy in a digital and complex world

Long-termism begins with the board. Prepare your board for the future, today.
