To help identify the key challenges and concerns facing audit committees, boards, and their companies today, KPMG's Audit Committee Institute surveyed some 1,500 audit committee members in more than 34 countries around the world on a range of timely issues, including:
- The audit committee's workload and agenda
- Risk and information quality
- CFO and the finance organization
- Corporate performance
- Internal audit
Our survey identifies broad international trends and provides detailed country data on audit committee challenges and concerns in different geographies.
As directors help guide their companies forward in the months ahead, our survey findings can serve as an important reference - for benchmarking current practices, identifying gaps and emerging risks, and sparking fresh conversations about how audit committees and boards are strengthening their oversight and keeping pave in an increasingly complex and fast-changing world.
