Online – Contingency Navigator Workshop Series
Thursday, September 10, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
Sponsored by Executive Education
How prepared are you to navigate through crises and uncertainty in your business? Recent events have hammered home how important contingency planning is to protecting your core business from disruptions large or small. This four-session series will walk you through a detailed and thoughtful planning process to ensure preparedness and continuity in your business should it face disruption.
Session 1 – Set the Scene: How will you define success? How do you stay true to your vision/mission/values? How is your current operating plan structured? What scenarios should be considered/planned for?
Session 2 – Establishing a Structure: Who are the key players in the process? What is “top of mind” for them? Who should be on the contingency team and how will it operate? What are the top 3-5 priorities on which you need to stay focused? How do you continue to deliver product and meet the expectations of your customers?
Session 3 – Finances, People, Value Chain and Communication: What short-term and long-term cash levers do you have available to continue operations in case of a crisis? Does your talent strategy align with your key priorities? Is your supply chain or distribution system robust enough to handle disruption? How will you communicate with external partners up and down your supply chain? How will you maintain effective internal communications?
Session 4 – Leading in the Midst of Chaos: How can leaders be most effective, especially during a crisis, but also in the transition back to work post-crisis?
