As coronavirus impacts countries, communities, and individuals it is teaching us important lessons about the value of prediction, action, and collaboration. As businesses face unprecedented levels of uncertainty, they are discovering new ways to lead, build resilience, and develop stronger predictive skills.
We spend a lot of time thinking about the future shape of organisations and how they operate. Our recent 'Beyond the curve’ webinar was a chance to discuss the best ways to reshape business strategies for the post COVID-19 world.
In the panel discussion, our speakers explore how businesses can become more sustainable now, and which ‘known unknowns’ should shake our thinking for the mid- and longer term.
William introduced methodologies that help businesses assess and more accurately predict their risk profiles.
Christopher spoke about how businesses need to rethink the purpose, application and the breadth of traditional business continuity plans in order to incorporate longer term recovery.
Jacky shared how we can use technology for increased flexibility, connectivity, insights and resilience during the current crisis.
In the closing panel discussion, the speakers discussed some of the most urgent actions businesses must do to ensure sustainability for the foreseeable future.
Adapting to a COVID-19 world
The COVID-19 pandemic is a major shock to the world. The human cost is hard to bear and our thoughts are with all those affected. As engineers, designers and consultants we have a role to play - this is a moment to be brave, try new ideas and collaborate to develop services and facilities our communities need.
