Audit Committee Workload 

Audit committee chairs, by nature, are detail-oriented and demanding, eager to tackle complex issues, and good at managing heavy agendas and telling it like it is. So when a chorus of seasoned audit committee chairs – like those we interviewed in this edition of Global Boardroom Insights – say the audit committee’s workload may be reaching a tipping point, every board’s antenna should go up.

Six interviews from around the world shed light on how audit committee agendas are evolving, and approaches that seasoned audit committee chairs are taking to help the committee focus its time and energy on the issues that matter most.

Starting with “learn to say no”, several key insights from the audit committee chairs of Apple, Carlsberg and Imperial Tobacco inter alia are included in the publication.

You are sure to find common challenges, and perhaps a few uncommon approaches, to making the most of the audit committee’s time, expertise, and value to the business.

We hope you find this global interview series a valuable resource from KPMG’s ACI, which was founded more than a decade ago – and now spans more than 30 countries worldwide – to support audit committees and boards with practical insights, resources, and peer-exchange opportunities.
