COVID-19: Navigating Urgent Operational Challenges

For every business, the COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge to the wellbeing and safety of their people.

For some businesses it’s also a new strategic opportunity. People’s needs, lifestyles and habits have had to change and some of these changes will be permanent. Services, products and markets will be reinvented and some companies can take advantage of these changes for their long-term benefit.

But for some companies, this is a time of urgent operational challenge. For these companies maintaining basic business operations is a huge concern. The key areas of focus right now are:

  1. Getting staff working effectively from home. People may be connected but that’s not the same as effective. For example, making business processes work may need new collaboration tools, video software and introduction of e-signing of contracts. Collaboration, efficiency and smooth operations require good technology and also positive leadership. Managers need to be coached and led through this change.
  2. Relocating operations and supply chains. Interruptions, transport restrictions and lock downs are requiring companies to move entire operations or change suppliers. These changes require leaders and managers with vision as well as strong knowledge of the operational and technical details.
  3. Reprioritizing IT plans and renegotiating with suppliers. Many companies need to bring forward cloud migrations, new cyber-security or connectivity projects. Leaders need a simple IT strategy and the ability to challenge existing assumptions. Many suppliers and customers are pulling together and sharing the burden but there may be a need for tough conversations. Some companies will need to renegotiate and to protect their cash.

It’s unclear when business will return to normal, but it’s likely that normal will be different to what it used to be! IT, systems and digital will be more core to business success than ever before.

IT Roadmap for Growth Event

We held the LinkedIn live event “IT Roadmap for Growth – the pitfalls, myths and how to get it right!” on Tuesday, August 10th, 2021. If you couldn’t attend the event, please see the recording here.

This 30min session was led by our Co-Founder and President Graeme Freeman and also featured CIO Bryan LeBlanc. They discussed the importance of businesses aligning their technology/digital strategy to their business goals, the all-too-common pitfalls and how to prepare the groundwork to create a robust IT Roadmap for Growth.

Get Real! Big vs. Small in the Age of technology Disruption and Innovation

Challengers versus incumbents, big versus small—recent years have seen the emergence of countless challenger businesses rising up across a number of sectors, all of them armed with the newest developments in technology, bearing promises of innovation and change, but with no certainty they’ll last through the year. Sentiments are strong on both ends—incumbents have lost touch with what customers really want! Newcomers don’t have the means or experience to make things happen! Everyone’s promising to shake things up but who will actually deliver and see the long-term results?

You know us by now as the technology trio—Freeman Clarke, Manifesto Growth and Northern Star: strategy, expertise, and infrastructure. And you know we’ve never been the ones to shy away from a debate. This recent event was no different. We pitted leaders from challenger and incumbent businesses from across different sectors against each other, giving them a chance to stake their claims.
