Survival or success? 10 issues for 2010


After more than a year of weak global economic performance and difficult business conditions, organizations around the world are looking more optimistically to the future.

While 2010 won’t be without its own challenges, indications of an economic recovery beginning to take hold in some countries suggest that the coming year could also be one of opportunities.

This briefing discusses 10 key issues for boards and their organizations to address in the year ahead. Governance specialists from Deloitte member firms around the globe – Asia, Europe and the Americas – have provided their insights to create articles that discuss each of these ongoing boardroom priorities within the context of today’s challenging business environment. Each article includes questions that directors may ask to further explore the issues with their own boards. In addition, the articles are supported with lists of valuable additional resources, such as Deloitte member firms’ Risk IntelligentTM program, which enables risk management considerations to be integrated into business decision making.

These selected tools – which can be obtained by contacting your Deloitte partner – will help directors to broaden their understanding of the issues and improve their board’s effectiveness in dealing with them.

There is no single preferred approach to addressing any of these issues – the right ones for each organization will depend on its own circumstances. Instead of providing answers, therefore, the purpose of this document is to help promote the discussions to help boards begin tackling the challenges and seizing the opportunities ahead.
