• The way to the New Normal…

    “Never let a good crisis go to waste” (W. Churchill)

The BDO way to the ‘New Normal’: manage the crisis and prepare for the aftermath

Today, we are living in a momentum of disruption and incredible challenges. Tomorrow, that will be the ‘New Normal’. 

React today, think of tomorrow

Some organisations are focusing on short-term management and survival of the COVID-19 crisis. Others are trying to analyse the uncertainties and are anticipating the scenarios for the future, reflecting on how to position and organise themselves once the crisis has passed and both businesses and society return back to normal. 

The New Normal

The ‘New Normal’ post-crisis will be fundamentally different from what we are used to. It is clear for everyone that the impact will be tremendous. No one can say how long the crisis will last, how severe the recession will be or how long recovery may take, but what we do know, is that we will not find the same ‘normal’ at the other end of the tunnel.

Plan the next steps

We all need to plan ahead appropriately in terms of strategy and processes, and fundamentally rethink the business as usual. In this context we know all of you, our clients, are facing numerous questions requiring an answer to overcome the crisis and become even stronger:

  • How can we protect our employees and reassure our clients and stakeholders during the relaunch?
  • How can we sufficiently analyse the impact of COVID-19 on our business performances?
  • How can we take appropriate financial management measures and optimise cost management? 
  • How can we adjust our policy and/or business strategy taking into account the impact of COVID-19 as well as the post-crisis challenges for our key clients and stakeholders?
  • How can we implement digital transformation to interact in new and even superior ways with our clients, citizens and employees?
  • How can we adjust all key components of our operating model (client segmentation and service delivery, processes and systems, organisation structures and governance,  people and workforce planning, …)?
