2014 Annual Corporate Directors Survey

Trends shaping governance and the board of the future

Trends shaping governance and the board of the future: PwC’s 2014 Annual Corporate Directors Survey, was released earlier this month.

P“We structured this year's survey to gauge director sentiment on a number of key governance trends shaping the board of the future,” said Mary Ann Cloyd, Leader of PwC's Center for Board Governance. “As directors continue to face scrutiny from investors, regulators and other stakeholders, board practices remain in the spotlight.”

Among the board practices that have the attention of more directors are those regarding IT.

“Over the past few years, we've seen significant changes to board practices regarding IT oversight and cybersecurity,” Cloyd said. “There is increasing recognition that IT is a business issue, not just a technology issue.”

Use the following links to learn more about specific topics addressed in this year’s survey: Board performance and diversity, Board priorities and practices, IT and cybersecurity oversight, Strategy and risk oversight, and Executive compensation and director communications.
