The Impact of Covid-19 on
Your Business and Your Industry
Moving from Indecision To Action
HOW HAS COVID CHANGED YOUR WORLD?
- Massive virtualization of entire industries overnight.
- The future has only one speed: FAST! It’s faster than it was before! If you can’t keep up, you’d better get fit!!
- Organizations are learning something new about the concept of ‘speed’ and what it means to be agile as we witness a seismic shift in the concept of “collaborative agility”
- There are some previous trends that have slowed but the vast majority of trends have accelerated to a huge degree. Leaders need to know how to tell the difference!
- Business models won’t go back to where they were before the pandemic. Business models are still being redefined, twisted, shaped and challenged
- We’ve had to move so fast that decision making paralysis has disappeared. Old ideas and slow structure have been obliterated, new winners are emerging and their key attribute is speed.
- The concept of ‘studying the issues’ is dead! It’s all about getting it done and that has long term implications. Leading companies just get on with innovation, they adjust, adapt and move on!
However, remember this – even in the worst of times there is still a wealth of opportunity out there!
Successful people tend to arrive in the future before the future does! Do you??
You are either part of it or you are not!!
FUTURE TRENDS =
Years from now, we will look back and realize that many industries, technologies, concepts and disruptive ideas accelerated throughout the crisis of 2020 – because they played a major role in the rebuilding of our dramatically different future.
We will also know that by aligning to these trends through a leadership culture of action that we were best able to quickly realize the opportunities of tomorrow.
