Risk in Review: Going the Distance

Risk resiliency + risk agility = enduring success in PwC’s 2016 Risk in review study.

We live in turbulent times. Companies across industries have faced an unprecedented confluence of risks. It’s no wonder that in PwC’s 19th Annual Global CEO study, 66% of CEOs saw more threats to their business than opportunities.

To remain competitive, companies must pursue two parallel strategies:

1. Building agile and flexible risk management frameworks that can anticipate and prepare for the shifts that bring long-term success and

2. Building the resiliency that will enable those frameworks to mitigate risk events and keep the business moving toward its goals.

This connection between risk resiliency1 and risk agility2 is at the heart of this year’s Risk in Review: Going the distance study. As our study shows, today’s most forward-looking companies have both the solid infrastructure and processes to help them weather any storm, as well as the flexibility to move quickly to meet new opportunities.

2 Risk agility: Building agile and flexible risk management frameworks that can anticipate and prepare for the shifts that bring long-term success.
