Uncertainty should not paralyze your organization.

It would be easy to assert that the last 3 1/2 years have demonstrated how uncertainties challenge businesses. When leaders cannot rely on crucial factors—such as demand, labor, costs, cybersecurity and energy—plans go awry, progress slows and microeconomic disruptions can combine to have macro effects.

The truth, though, is we understood this before the pandemic and its seismic economic fallout. Unpredictable disruptions of all types—technology, regulation, policy, war, disease, weather, bad actors, etc.—have always tested businesses’ resilience and agility. The difference now is that businesses have more effective resources and tools to insulate against uncertainties and minimize risks.
