Life on the outside

After the initial Coronavirus crisis a couple of weeks ago we now seem to be settling down to a new “normal”. Now that we are through the worst of the firefighting we can start to improve our current situation for the next 3-6 months.

As always, start with the biggest processes and look for ways that they can be improved. Not all changes will be worth making as they may not reap sufficient benefits in the timescale to justify the time or money required to set them up. This shouldn’t stop you coming up with the ideas; it is just that there are now two potential payback periods of “lockdown/recovery” and any benefits after this time.

It is also worth thinking about what sort of business you want to run after the virus. Have you learned new things or implemented new processes or products/services that are worth keeping?
