COVID-19 – 3 things you should do right now to ensure business continuity!



It’s not the strongest that survive; it’s those who are most adaptable to change.

Throughout this global pandemic, it is certainly not business as usual – the world has changed. Surviving through it requires innovation, which is focused on:

  • Adapting to the new environment by developing new business and operating models which are sustainable throughout this period; and
  • Setting your organisation up to pounce as soon as the inevitable recovery begins

3 things you should do immediately!

  1. Create a focused, articulated business continuity plan which addresses the very specific and unique challenges your organisation now faces in these circumstances, and which provides clarity on how you will navigate through them
  2. Create a focused, articulated strategic plan for how your organisation will set itself up to be among the first beneficiaries of the inevitable rebound
  3. Based on #1 and #2, develop an execution plan. Then, stay informed on developments in the crisis but don’t be overly reactive to every development (or talk of developments).
