Post Meeting Notes: Stop Planning, Start Preparing: Zoom Interactive Event

On 2nd April 2020, CRF members gathered for ‘Stop Planning, Start Preparing’, a Zoom Interactive Event. Director of CRF Learning Nick Holley hosted Directors at Ashridge Strategic Management Centre Dr. Stephen Bungay and Dr. Rebecca Homkes in discussion about what leaders can do to prepare their organisations to survive the current coronavirus crisis, reset the plan, and thrive through a potential downturn.

These post meeting notes include an overview of the key take away points, and the main questions and answers from the interactive audience.

They offered a three-part approach including:

  1. Survive - weather the immediate economic storm and preserve business continuity
  2. Reset - revisit and reset your strategy to take account of the new reality
  3. Thrive - set yourself up for growth and take advantage of emerging opportunities
