Although most of the risks and burdens of Covid-19 are still with us, now is the time to plan for growth rather than merely continuing to hang on. If we wait till all signs of the pandemic are gone before planning for a more robust future, we may miss the optimal time to take action.
The need to take a rigorous look ahead is becoming particularly apparent as I work with organizations that hunkered down as best as they could during Covid, trying to pivot their offerings, doing the crazy work necessary to obtain PPP loans, and reassuring staff that there was still a place for them. Planning is vital even for the companies that pivoted so well they’re overwhelmed by unplanned growth and rely on workarounds and overtime rather than sturdy infrastructure and processes.
