Meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of corporate disclosure.
After a decade of spectacular financial scandals, high-profile business implosions and a global credit market collapse, at least one aspect of the economic future now appears perfectly clear: Corporate disclosure requirements are trending irresistibly toward transparency. Investors, regulators and other stakeholders are demanding financial performance and operational data in greater variety and detail.
A growing consensus holds that traditional financial reports don’t adequately depict risk or opportunity in the knowledge-based economy. Alternative standards are being proposed to better measure intangible value sources such as strategy, innovation, personnel and intellectual property. Other initiatives seek core-value information to illuminate an organization’s social, ethical and environmental behavior.
