Download: New NACD Blue Ribbon Commission Report on Disruptive Risks

National Association of Corporate DirectorsThe  National Association of Corporate Directors has published its 2018 Report of the NACD Blue Ribbon Commission on Adaptive Governance: Board Oversight of Disruptive Risks to provide directors with valuable insights and tools.

How can directors do a thorough job of assessing disruptive risks and then of guiding their companies toward effective responses? More broadly, how can directors fulfill their core responsibilities for overseeing performance, strategy, risk management, and enterprise content management when volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) are the only constants?

The report provides:

  • a functional definition of disruptive risk
  • characteristics of the current environment—and their implications
  • a definition of adaptive governance as a framework for overseeing disruptive risks
  • the essential components of adaptive governance
  • recommendations for putting adaptive governance into practice
