Gartner surveys its global legal clients annually to surface the key challenges facing their departments. We surveyed 155 executives, and three key challenges around rapid transformation and risk management emerged across the board: 

  1. Over 60% of executives identified risk management processes lagging behind changes in the risk environment as their most significant issue for 2019.
  2. More than half of respondents expressed concern about their ability to provide meaningful legal advice in response to strategic changes within the business.
  3. Executives expressed the lowest overall confidence in their ability to deal with poorly coordinated risk management processes within their organizations.

These challenges are interrelated, with a common root cause: the rapid transformation of organizations and the new risks that emerge as a result.
