Planning and executing in uncertainty

Many firms have struggled to plan and act in the face of the continuing uncertainty of the Covid 19 crisis and its wider social and economic impacts. This has been driven by a wide range of factors, from a perceived lack of tools and information to organisational inertia and outright fear. This inability to plan, and more importantly act puts firms at a significant strategic disadvantage, and in some cases could endanger their very survival.

This series explored the steps firms can take to drive more effective planning in light of the continuing uncertainty, and help ensure they are continuing to act to protect their businesses and take advantage of any opportunities that appear.

At it’s heart it is ensuring the firm can continue to operate as a going concern regardless of the shocks it encounters.
