The board future-readiness audit, is an audit like any other: it is designed to test for the presence of competence and compliance, in this case the presence of adequate future-preparedness at board and executive managment level. This covers both strategic risk and opportunities. (Lost opportunities, or the inability to perceive or navigate opportunities is costly.) The audit is an online questionnaire that is available to a broad base of participants, and is followed by phone-interviews with key players. The data is confidential and will be completely anonymized if documented externally.
