Realizing that businesses will forever be changed, change does not have to be an entirely negative situation. By defining the possible level of disruption of your business, you need to identify and prepare for either the best-case scenario, worst-case scenario, or as with most, somewhere in between.
You will need to determine how much of your operations were impacted by the pandemic. By briefly documenting each of the components of your business, such as employees, customers, suppliers, and service functions, you will have the information necessary to develop a new business continuity plan to prepare for any future disruptions. It’s important to have a risk management strategy to reduce the impact and shorten recovery times.
