Identifying the Crucial Problems with your Organisation
During the onset of a crisis, there could be a multitude of impacts on various functions of the organisation, which may paralyse it. This chapter highlights the steps to identify the most pressing issues and to anticipate future problems which may arise from a crisis. To avoid feeling overwhelmed by a massive pile of problems, this chapter will bring you how to divide and conquer, prioritising the urgent and vital issues.
Optimising your Organisation to be Prepared to Tackle any Crisis
For any crisis, it is essential to have a strong foundation, which can help the organisation pull through the storm. This chapter advises organisations on the areas they should focus on when organisations are in different stages of a crisis, and highlights the importance of prioritising cash flow in times of difficulties.
Strategise your Company for Execution
Better late than never. When a crisis hits an organisation, it should identify and optimise the processes critical to the organisation, and aim to maximise its returns on its typically most considerable expense - payroll. This chapter makes recommendations on how an organisation should deal with its different types of costs, and shows the instructions for making a weekly cash flow report.
