Dave Ingram and Mike Wilkinson introduce their blogpost series, A Year in the Life of the Strategic CRO. Based on interview findings, they share how CROs can become more strategic and successful.

Three themes emerged from the interviews with more than 20 CROs, former CROs, CFOs and a CEO:

  1. ERM needs to be business-focused.
  2. Strategy is more than planning and budgeting.
  3. The contributions to strategy should be built around ERM’s strengths and weaknesses.

The series will explore these themes and conversations throughout 2019. To learn more, read the first blogpost: Eight key considerations for chief risk officers now that strategic planning is over.
