But I am wondering as we return to work, we look ahead to the rest of 2020 and 2021…What if we get a second wave? What if it’s another blow to your business, your customer’s recovery, or your supply chain?
But the lessons still apply for all intrepid IT and IS leaders- how can you create trust and agility for 2021, will your culture and company hold together without it?
For companies both big and small there more major, difficult conversations directly ahead. (Yes, still. Sorry) Are we ready for an acceleration in multiple strategic directions all at once? That usually feels like the fabric ripping at the seams.
What needs to be done to find the right path forward within the framework of big complex business and tech and people changes like digital transformation, leadership upshift, agility, cyber security, and more?
BCP, CULTURE & SECURITY CONVERSATIONS TO COME
- Did we do the right things to stabilize the business for the crisis while we were in the thick of it?
- What things were we not ready for? Were we really set up for remote working? Did everyone have access to the things they needed to continue their work? Was everyone able to work safely and productively? Did everyone know what to do? Did they do it?
- What is the best plan of action to prepare for a still uncertain future?
CEO & Founder Cybermaniacs
For forward thinking people with an intrepid mindset.. these few months of recovery are an amazing opportunity to help our customers and businesses in profound ways. We can help companies level up, modernise, and re-optimise across multiple dimensions driven by a survival-instinct level business necessity we have not seen before.
Digital Transformation Acceleration Imperative
Channel Parnter, NTE Limited
“Businesses big and small need to realise that technology alone doesn’t equate to Digital Transformation. They need to consider People & Process, along with technology, in order to tackle transformation head-on. I would argue that the People element is the most important. If your employees understand what you are trying to achieve and why you’re doing it, and they are bought into it, then your chances of success improve greatly!”
CEO Agile Business Consortium
Agility is more than the skill to sense and respond. It gives our teams the power to predict and prepare. Organisations that seek to mitigate risk, invest in agility. This pandemic has proven it.
BCP Can No Longer Be A Static Document
Post covidtimes and in order to survive the pancession, the ability for your organization to come up with creative solutions to new problems at speed will be a primary source of business value.
Culture Matters Most as glue to hold your people together
To adapt willfully, successfully, securely and rapidly to the changing situation requires more than process discipline and cloud technology- culture starts with leadership, is built by the team.
We can only expect people to do the ‘right thing’ in a crisis or working from home, if it is embedded deep as part of your security culture.
Baseline Digital Competencies and Capabilities Were the Key Differentiator to Flip & Recovery
How many of your customers had great cultural underpinnings of agility to ride the wave? If they had the right tech in place at least, did the people who staff the company even know what to do?
Having an entire workforce be able to do the right thing, at the right time, in any scenario….means everyone needs to be upskilled ready to roll on all BASIC CYBER THREATS & DIGITAL COMPETENCIES in a continually updated model.

Looking back, we felt we were able to switch to remote working quite easily, as we had spent the past few years optimising our business across multiple levels. Being prepared meant we were able to focus 100% of our effort on our 3 point model and meeting the shifting market, rather than worrying about the tech or new workflows of our teams. The three points we focused on were awareness of outside forces to meet the market, agility that allowed us to shift product strategy and react quickly, and action which ensured the team is meeting our customer needs for rapid communication and partnership during the crisis.
The solutions you create now will either create or break trust in 2021
- What can be done now, what is easy and inexpensive?
- Where do we not have expertise or the ability to scale?
- What are the plug and play solutions so we can focus on strategic imperatives and business specific essentials?
Here’s one big question to ask and answer for your customers. Did your people know what to do to keep your company and customers safe? What if it was easy to start to fix that so you can move onto harder things?
