Amid geopolitical complexity, uncertainty persists

Scenario planning, risk sensing may help companies brace for possibilities on the horizon

The global geopolitical landscape has become increasingly volatile and difficult to predict, particularly after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This uncertainty has potential consequences for global corporations on multiple fronts.

As corporate boards carry out their responsibility to oversee management’s execution of operational, growth, and strategic objectives, they need to consider the many geopolitical and economic issues on the horizon and the possible consequences for their companies.

Russian and Ukrainian leaders have demonstrated significant resolve to continue the battle as peace negotiations have stalled.

Russia has taken multiple steps in an effort to fortify its economy in the face of these sanctions.
