Your business is competing in a never-ending race to reach, close and maintain customer relationships. With COVID-19 disrupting business, companies most likely to persevere are those that first remain composed and avoid internal panic.
Winning in The COVID-19 Turn
All great race car drivers understand one truth; races are won “in the turns”. To enable a fully remote/mobile workforce you must verify secure connections are available to employees accessing key business communications and collaboration tools. To be successful in a COVID-19 transformed world you must be decisive if you’re going to win in this downturn.
In any crisis, leadership must be objective when assessing capabilities as well as shortcomings. This should address an event, or series of events, that impacts, or potentially impacts, an entity’s operations and ability to do business. In the case of COVID-19, the event is easy to identify. What’s a bit harder to put a finger on, is the vulnerabilities associated with your current network technology.
Key facets to evaluate are;
- Disaster recovery
- Quality of Service
- Qualitative and quantitative impacts from disruptions
You must also assess the following;
- Disruption response
- Minimum service requirements
- Vendor availability
Once you have a good picture of the threat, your capabilities and what you need to continue operations, you can realistically plan. Should the virus continue to spread you will be well-served if you regard the COVID-19 as an opportunity for prolonged self-evaluation and encourage the revision of legacy plans and processes, as well as the creation of new ones.
