Top Risks for 2018: Consumer Products and Services Industry Group Results

The top risk issues for 2018 identified by respondents from Consumer Products and Services organisations reflect the fiercely competitive and ever-changing business environment that these companies need to understand to thrive. Although we see a slight reduction in the magnitude and severity of risks that organisations in the industry group will be facing next year, there are significant increases in the scores of the top risk issues for the industry group, most notably around resistance to change, succession challenges and organisational culture, all of which rank as “Significant Impact” risk issues. The rapid speed of disruptive innovation, which includes digital transformation, jumped substantially as well, and hovers just below the “Significant Impact” risk level for 2018.
