Forbes-Deloitte survey: A crisis of confidence

Are you ready to handle a crisis?

Deloitte’s global survey report, A crisis of confidence, examines the gap between real and perceived crisis readiness in the eyes of board members and the large companies they direct. Respondents offer their insights and concerns about crisis risks and their companies’ level of crisis management maturity.

The report discusses:

  • Board members’ confidence in their organizations’ crisis-related abilities
  • Perceived vulnerabilities and companies’ efforts to address them
  • The role of the board before, during, and immediately after a crisis—what to ask and do
  • Practical steps to advance on the journey from crisis awareness to crisis readiness.

About the survey
To assess the state of crisis readiness in large organizations, Forbes Insights, on behalf of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, conducted a survey of more than 300 board members from companies representing every major industry and geographic region. The survey, conducted in the fourth quarter of 2015, targeted companies with annual revenues that ranged from US$500 million to more than US$20 billion (or the equivalent).
