COVID-19

Business leaders are grappling with the challenges wrought by COVID-19, challenges which affect every aspect of their organisation — from their people to their bottom lines. As they seek to quickly respond to this rapidly unfolding crisis, they must also make decisions about next steps in a fluid and uncertain environment where the longer-term horizon is still evolving.

The work they do on both fronts will shape the future of their organisations. In an increasingly complex and volatile business environment, informed decision-making based on knowledge but inspired by genuine insight has never been more important.

Decision Making In Complex & Volatile Times:
Keys to Managing COVID-19

Decisions can’t be made based on what was known yesterday. Rather, decision-making must be driven by continually refreshing understanding of what is known today and recalibrating understanding of how tomorrow is being reshaped by today.

Leaders must have the right mindset, the most relevant information at hand and the decision-making frameworks in place to manage a great deal of uncertainty while also preparing for the future. This enhances the ability of the firm to put their best foot forward at every stage, even when in uncharted waters. This is what resilience looks like.

In this report, we explore the cyclical nature of COVID-19’s event arc and then lay out a comprehensive response framework that helps to build the right mindsets, create flexibility and execute meaningful actions for both the short and long term.

You can either react to a reputation event or be proactive for when it occurs — and it inevitably will occur. React and you’re in danger of losing control of the event’s narrative, which will damage your brand and your shareholder value.
Be proactive, however, and embrace and respond to those adverse events and you’ll find the market not only forgives but may also reward.
