Integrated Reporting Principles - Alignment in storytelling

30 Jul 2020 by Mike Tisdall

There are a number of reasons why ‘alignment’ is a good word to keep in mind when planning your corporate reporting – and integrated reporting in particular. This eight minute video spells them out, and goes on to tell you where to look to find some alignment to inform your report narrative.

With practical, real-world examples of how these principles have been applied to reports for companies such as NZ Post, Vector and Watercare, the hope is that these few minutes will help you approach your next report with a road map, a bit more clarity, and a toolkit for telling a cohesive story to your various stakeholder groups.

We wrap up with a bit of planning theory: how to map out your document structure logically, and to closely reflect your company's vision, mission, values and strategic plan.
