10Minutes on hedge fund activism

No company is safe from hedge fund activism. Activists have massive assets under management, and they target companies of all sizes, in all industries. What can you do to get ahead of an activist situation? Analyze your company's vulnerabilities and engage with your shareholders about the company’s long-term strategic plan. This tandem strategy of self-analysis and engagement can help your company stay out of activists' cross hairs.

Big business decisions don’t commonly include people analytics—but they should. Learn how data about your people can shape your business strategy.

10Minutes on transforming the audit experience

Companies across the business spectrum are undergoing transformation. Markets themselves are moving more quickly, with an insatiable demand for information. At the center of many of these changes is digital technology. Like innovators in other industries, auditors are investing in technology tools that redefine how work is done. But that’s only part of the story at PwC. We’re also reimagining how our people and your finance teams work together and how, when, and where the audit is performed.

10Minutes on making big decisions

When it comes to making your most important business decisions, there are a plethora of factors to consider. Many company leaders probably rely on gut instinct to guide them—what we think of as the ‘art’ of strategic decision making. But what about the ‘science’ side of the equation, data and analytics? We believe superior decision making—done with confidence, clarity, and agility—is only possible through a new combination of art and science.
