Focusing on strengthening strategic and operational capabilities
In a crisis, it is typical for the response and recovery phases to overlap. Businesses beginning to plan for recovery early on will be better positioned to bounce back from the crisis successfully and grow.
In the recovery phase, it is crucial that businesses focus on strengthening their strategic and operational capabilities which amongst others will involve incorporating learnings from the response phase. To ensure resilience, business leaders will need to look to the future and consider what success will look like in a post COVID-19 world. By shifting your mindset from “today” and “now” to “tomorrow” and “future” you will be able to develop a robust recovery strategy.
Focus on finance, employees, supply chains and customers
To power your recovery plans, you will need to secure appropriate finance and funding, empower your employees, protect your supply chains, engage your clients and consider the complete business ecosystem.
