The long view: Getting new perspective on strategic risk is an Economist Intelligence Unit report that explores how companies manage long-term strategic risks in their business. The report is sponsored by ACCA and Willis.
The Economist Intelligence Unit bears sole responsibility for the content of this report. Our editorial team executed the online survey, conducted the interviews and wrote the report. The findings and views expressed in this report do not necessarily reflect the views of the sponsors.
Our research for this report drew on two main initiatives:
We conducted an online survey of almost 500 executives from around the world in October 2011. The survey included companies from a wide range of different sectors. All respondents have direct responsibility for, or influence over, their firm's risk management, either as CEO or board-level executive (42%), as chief risk officer or other dedicated risk executive (39%), or as a non-executive director (19%).
To supplement the survey results, the Economist Intelligence Unit conducted a programme of qualitative research that included a series of in-depth interviews with industry experts.
