When thinking about lockdowns and disruptions to your own business’s experience there is a wealth of useful information to be gathered and reflect on.
By keeping track of the changes you have made and when you implemented them, you may not only find invaluable insights into what has worked, but also highlight new ideas to be explored upon returning to normal.
These reflections allow you to assess what you have achieved by pausing or continuing your business and perhaps add further weight to the decisions you will be making in the coming weeks and months. All of this will become increasingly relevant as the time nears to think about recovery and growth.
To review your response to the lockdown, consider the following:
• What actions did you take?
• What did you learn about your business?
• What new ways of working did you adopt?
• What old ways of working can be improved or abandoned?
• How did you and your staff respond to the challenges?
• What new opportunities have been identified?
Overall, think about:
• What worked well?
• What can you change or do differently?
• What can you do more of?
• What can you do less of, or stop doing completely?
Finally, some key considerations to help you move forwards:
• How do you respond to the new market conditions?
• How do you manage and control the finances of your business?
• How do you re-shape your business?
