Uncertainty around the severity of the pandemic, governmental responses, and differences between businesses makes planning difficult. We found that the best way businesses can respond to reopening is by separating their efforts into three broad categories:
Immediate plan of action, with focus on surviving, maintaining existing value chains, and doubling down on existing relationships; Extended plan of action, where monitoring and adapting according to conditions takes precedence to quick reactions; and Proactive plan of action, analyzing and pursuing long-term opportunities presented by unprecedented times.
Your company isn’t a company without human assets. Whatever strategy you take, your plan must provide for these assets first. Use this COVID continuity checklist to drive functional initiatives for productivity, innovation, and growth.
