Preparing for the Post-Pandemic World: 4 Critical Considerations

You’re still firmly entrenched in crisis mode. However, planning for the COVID-19 recovery phase can’t wait. The foundational pillars of your business— customer demand, supplier networks, human capital, and internal capacity—won’t look the same as they did before. Companies that accelerate their adjustment process will fare best on the other side.

Don't Let the Pandemic Recovery Be as Disruptive as the Crisis

Everything that matters to your business depends on quick, effective adjustment to the “new normal” in the post-pandemic world of COVID-19.

It can be a challenge to think about what’s next for your business when so many decisions still need to be made by global, federal, regional, and local leaders about how and when the economy will restart. But if the coronavirus has taught us anything, it’s that a wait-and-see mentality isn’t an option. 

Topics addressed in this article:

  • Now is the time to begin planning for the transition back to a more stable state of demand; a transition which could prove just as, if not more, disruptive for your business than the pandemic itself. 
  • However, your “new normal” could look much different than pre-pandemic operations. 
  • Being prepared requires careful consideration and dynamic planning around four critical pillars of your business that may not be the same as they were before: customer demand, supplier networks, human capital, and internal capacity.
