In this eBook, produced by Compliance Week in cooperation with KPMG, we examine the changing role of directors, the forces that are transforming the function, and the most important items that boards should keep in mind as they help guide their companies forward in the year ahead.

First we’ll take a look at how the increased use and regulatory scrutiny around non-GAAP financial reporting measures last year is prompting standard setters to weigh potential changes to current standards. Then we’ll examine how boards are prioritizing their agendas today, including in the areas of strategic risk, cyber-security, executive succession planning, talent development, and much more. Finally, we’ll take an in-depth look at how directors are making the decision to institute, continue, stop, or change their companies’ buyback programs.

As directors adapt to new demands and a whole new regulatory environment, they must overcome new challenges. This eBook covers those issues, and more.
