Disruptive technologies, polarization, and an increasingly educated public are the new reality in corporate reporting. In this volatile environment the annual report communicates a company’s stability and reliability. Backward-looking financial figures alone are not sufficient to retain stakeholder trust. The annual reporting ritual of reflecting on strategy and performance across all parts of a business offers more than just presenting financial accounts. Internally, it can be the catalyst for breaking down silos, for agility, for change, and for a shared holistic view of the business. The insights gained for reporting signify common consensus, and at the same time pave the way for a successful future business model. Externally, reporting can deliver a solid and robust fact base that serves as a prerequisite for tailored storytelling to bolster reputation. So, is the reporting journey its own reward?
