One of the lessons from the pandemic is that professional firms need to re-tune every aspect of their strategy and operations
Getting ready for the new normal
Many organisations wait for a storm to abate. Smart firms treat adverse conditions as though they were in a Formula 1 pitstop, using the analogy first shared by Professor Scott of LBS.
They use the time to fine-tune everything – tyres, on-board systems, brake pads, chassis, fuel levels, intercom, etc and they also check out the status of the other cars and the latest weather and track conditions.
That way, they and their car are as ready as possible for the new normal. Re-join the race with an unmodified car or an unchanged driving style, and you are highly likely to be overtaken or worse.
