Cost Optimization Analysis
Don’t rush in blindly.
While time is of the essence, there are always long-term considerations and relationships. For instance, how you treat your vendors now will shape your relationship in the long run.
Everything is on the table.
The COVID-19 pandemic forced governments to enact extreme measures. Follow their example. Organizations and businesses need to make deep cuts that previously would have seemed impossible.
Don’t give up on long-term objectives.
While short-term survival is the prime focus, you still need to thrive in the long term. As much as possible, match every short-term decision with an associated long-term risk assessment.
Plan for the “new normal."
You must consider how you will recover and succeed in the long term but at the same time take advantage of the “new normal.” For example, travel cuts may finally stick due to proven digital meeting technology.
