The governance of a company is becoming more and more challenging as the issues that the organization has to deal with in terms of control and monitoring have become more diverse. This covers operational, strategic, legal and IT topics as well as – currently particularly relevant – geopolitical and ESG issues. This means that numerous interfaces in the company have to be coordinated: with the legal department, the compliance function, IT and the finance department.
In the second episode of our “Future of Governance” podcast series, we discuss Dr. Konstantin von Busekist, Head of the Global Compliance Practice at KPMG Law, and Dr. Jan-Hendrik Gnändiger, Head of Risk & Compliance Services at KPMG in Germany, what governance requirements there are when these include a systematic approach to controlling and monitoring of currently relevant topics and how management can deal with them. In addition, it addresses questions such as: Does control take place on the horizontal or vertical level? What role do digitalization and the use of technology play? And above all, what does it all mean for the employees?
