Any crisis can have a severe impact on a business, or even a whole industry - but some organizations are better prepared than others. Thanks to the early adoption of digital transformation efforts, some companies enhanced their global agility, allowing them to react better, faster, and smarter. The next question is: What should businesses focus on in the immediate aftermath of a crisis? Find out with our exclusive infographic.

What next?

The COVID-19 crisis has disrupted the daily operations of many organizations in all sectors, forcing them to quickly review and rethink the essential functions of their business in order to survive. After a rapid crisis response, and a few months of coping with the new normal, it is now time to identify the aspects needed to solidify the future of your organization. Of course, that is easier said than done! The key question is what businesses should focus on right now, with an eye on the future.  

Some organizations, further along in their digital transformation initiatives, have been able to respond more quickly to change through intelligent, data-driven decision-making supported by digital solutions. Others suffer from a lack of agility, with investment in digital solutions dropping behind what is needed to support the functioning of a modern business. For both groups, the specifics may change, but there are some common themes, including 5 things businesses should focus on after a crisis.
