This is not a crisis like any other. More than ever, it needs senior level people on boards of companies to have good strategic foresight, who do not just think about keeping their organisations afloat but have the capability of developing and assessing long-term prospects.
As a first, they need a quicker adoption of digitalisation initiatives and new technologies. The planet is having a crash course in e-commerce, digital payments and remote working. Organisations need to keep riding this wave.
Secondly, they need to observe emerging trends in supply chains and ensure that they have adequate logistical arrangements in place to react quickly to shifting patterns of consumption without undue delays and costs.
Thirdly, they need to ensure that staff morale and wellbeing is kept at acceptable healthy levels. Our people require and deserve significant investment in terms of ensuring that they are rehabilitated to different patterns of doing things whilst at the same time emerging from the crisis healthier and empowered more than ever before.
This is not a crisis like any other. It will offer opportunities like we have not been able to tap before.
