The consequences of the COVID-19 outbreak have pushed businesses into a state of flux. Across industries, long-term roadmaps were eschewed in favor of quick-fix solutions as businesses adapted to a radically different environment – one in which consumer behavior and market movements were increasingly unpredictable.
Moving forward, devising corporate strategy will focus on developing short- and medium-term plans that are more agile while continuing to protect and grow the crucial bottom line. Regardless of your industry, your business strategy will need to be far more malleable to take advantage of opportunities in continuously uncertain circumstances. This also includes optimizing your portfolio to ensure balance – and as much stability as possible – to nurture future growth and build a competitive advantage.
While corporate strategy development has increasingly become a digital-first exercise over the years, the time has come for these strategies to become far more deeply digital – and fast. Naturally, digital transformation will be a key priority for businesses worldwide, and all forward-ready corporate strategies will factor in digital capability development and implementation.
