2020 is almost in the rearview… Finally. Combine the biggest economic shakeup since the mid-2000s with lockdowns and traditional election-year grandstanding, and many companies are looking to put this year behind them. That said, lockdowns have to end at some point, and as businesses start planning out their recovery, decisions made today will impact the speed, the success, and the scale of your rebound.
The Tools of Decisiveness
Recovery is going to require you to be decisive. Decisions need to be made quickly, with the right information and the right tools to understand such info. That’s why it pays to ask, “are the processes we have today helping us? Or are they slowing down decisions and leaving us blindly charging into the unknown?”
2020 has presented businesses with a lot of challenges, and probably required you to make significant changes to your operations. In fact, businesses around the world spent the equivalent of $15bn extra a week on technology as they transitioned to remote working as a result of the pandemic, according to the 2020 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey.
While it’s likely that some of the changes and some of that money was part of a lasting cloud investment, a healthy portion of the money spent was focused on quick fixes—band-aids to get your workforce connected to technology.
Especially for those using legacy technology, those quick fixes aren’t going to last, and they might even make things more complicated as you start slowly welcoming your staff back into the office.
Lasting Change on a Budget
No matter where you are on the recovery spectrum, either just starting to pivot or actively moving toward regular pre-COVID operations, it’s likely you don’t have as much cash on hand as you did this time last year. You may want to set your company up for the long run and you may have realized the hassles of working with legacy software in a socially distanced world, but the coffers aren’t flush. It happens.
