    Integrating risk into performance when reporting to the board of directors

    As the board of directors is ultimately responsible for a company’s success or failure, board members should be adequately informed not only about the company’s (financial) performance but about the risks that may impact the company’s strategy and results as well. Because today’s global economic climate indicates that the business world is more uncertain, risky and volatile than it has been in the past, Vlerick has launched a research project to study corporate practices with respect to reporting performance and risk to the board of directors.

    Supply Chain Risk Management, still in its infancy

    Undoubtedly, every manager in charge of a supply chain has stories of deliveries that got delayed, suppliers that had a major breakdown, factories that suffered from quality issues, shipments that were blocked in a port or products that had to be recalled. Natural disasters – such as floods, volcanic eruptions or earthquakes can also cause major disruptions to supply chains. Ironically, one of the main reasons that supply chain risk has increased in recent years is the implementation of supply chain best practices.

    Bank ratings: key determinants and cyclicality

In July 2007, the world entered the most profound and disruptive crisis since 1929. Initially originating in the US, it has evolved into a deep and complex crisis at global level, resulting in significant economic damage. Lack of market transparency, the abrupt downgrading of credit ratings and the failure of Lehman Brothers have initiated a global breakdown of trust.
