PwC’s integrated reporting roadmap


PwC’s integrated reporting roadmap

Each organisation will need to tailor our guidance to their specific situation and remain ocused on their own assessment of value and their value creation process.

Stage 1: Look at the outside world and engage with your stakeholders

Guiding questions:

  • Have you identified and prioritised your stakeholders and assessed how you engage with them?
  • Have you considered the business opportunities and risks arising from megatrends?
  • How well do you understand your competitive position in the market?
  • How do you assess materiality?

Cumulative benefits to your reporting:

  • Stakeholder engagement process
  • Value chain map
  • Analysis of operational context and competitors
  • Materiality matrix

Stage 2: Determine your stakeholder value proposition and refresh your strategy

Guiding questions:

  • How do you define value for your stakeholders?
  • How do you create value for your stakeholders?
  • Is your strategy resilient for the short, medium and long term?
  • Should you refresh your strategy and goals to reflect all your material issues?

Cumulative benefits to your reporting:

  • Definition of value
  • Improved risk reporting
  • Value creation process

Stage 3: Align your internal processes to your strategy

Guiding questions:

  • How does your organisational culture and behaviour support delivery of your strategic objectives?
  • Is your integrated management information enabled by systems and processes?
  • Can you link your strategic objectives to your suite of management information?

Cumulative benefits to your reporting:

  • Value drivers
  • Qualitative disclosures of connectivity
  • Insight into cultural alignment
  • Relevant KPIs
  • The first three stages enable reporting disclosures as highlighted as well as contributing to the overall operational benefits listed below.

Stage 4: Develop your integrated dashboard

Guiding questions:

  • Can you communicate to the rest of your organisation how your strategy delivers value to stakeholders?
  • Can you ensure that your management information provides holistic insight to the board and other decision makers?
  • Do you make decisions based on holistic management information?
  • Do you have the right data to drive your decisions?
  • How do you evaluate your impact and is it incorporated into your dashboard?

Cumulative benefits to your reporting:

  • Connected insights into (predictive) relationships between stakeholder value and impact
  • The integrated dashboard breaks down silos between different departments, clarifying how each department contributes to business benefits
  • Reduced reporting burden as the integrated dashboard combines several (pre-existing) reports into one overarching report with factual (vs. intuitional) stakeholder value
  • Communication tool (internal and external) on how the organisation creates the value that stakeholders are looking for
  • Aligned internal and external reporting, improving the efficiency of external reporting processes at the end of the year
  • Measurement of impact: Total Impact Measurement and Management

Stage 5: Integrate your reporting for a better investor dialogue

Guiding questions:

  • Within your existing reporting process, have you nominated a multidisciplinary steering group?
  • Has the board provided the steering group with a clear vision? What story is to be told?
  • Have you nominated one responsible writer?
  • Have you started on a blank page and determined the scope and boundaries?
  • Are you using the connectivity matrix as the storyline?
  • Is there a clear communication plan for how to improve the use of the annual report within your investor dialogue?

Cumulative benefits to your reporting:

  • External reporting becomes more valuable for your investor dialogue, and for the dialogue with other stakeholders
  • Your external reporting becomes the solid basis for continuous and fundamental improvement of your reporting and alignment of internal and external reporting
