How resilience can help you weather the storm
The coronavirus crisis, which has affected every industry at unnerving speed, has underlined how vital it is for businesses to respond rapidly to new challenges in increasingly inventive ways. Those that can react quickly and creatively have a better chance of bouncing back from disruption and damage. These companies truly know the secret of resilience, which is a theme running through this issue of Delivered.
To be resilient, you have to be able to accept and then adapt to your new reality. Companies in the life sciences and healthcare sector (LSH) understand this only too well. COVID-19 has highlighted the incredible skills and expertise of innovative LSH teams across the world – and continues to do so. Their response to supply chain shocks caused by the current crisis has been remarkable and, as our Focus article points out, includes employing new digital approaches to transform the use of data in manufacturing and the wider supply chain. It’s comforting to know that while LSH companies remain laser focused on helping people in the present, they also realize they must make improvements to their operations for a more resilient future.
