RRR – Respond, Reset and Renew
Time for a Re-think

The current global disruption requires changes to be made in weeks that previously would have taken years. Change is urgent. To rethink your business, quickly identify strategic bets to make your operations more resilient and your products and services more desirable to customers.

Here are a few things at which to take a hard look as you rethink your business plan:

What are the discernible sales trends? What is growing and what is not? Why and why not?
Are you accumulating cash or consuming cash?
Have you lost or gained any key customers? If so, do you know why?
Are any planned capital investments (including technology and people) still viable?
Has anything significant changed with competitors?
