Prepare for the unexpected
The novel Coronavirus epidemic has had a profound impact on our public and private life. Out of the blue, a Black Swan event has changed our perspectives and disrupted entire economies and systems and the emergency has undoubtedly encouraged us to reflect on an important issue: unpredictability. The unexpected lurks in the shadows and can trigger huge change that we are not ready for.
Companies have been at the forefront of this battle with the invisible enemy as the pandemic has impacted all their processes (transport, procurement of raw materials, sales, etc.). This begs the question: can we prepare for the unexpected? There is no clear answer as the number of possibilities we should prepare for is infinite but an important tool that can help us is business continuity management.
