The future is already here and that New Normal which was discussed across platforms is finally here. COVID 19 crisis and the lockdown which followed has, in a way, preponed arrival of many things. The economies have been ravaged and organizations challenged. The reality to embrace technology, remote working spaces, lesser travel yet higher productivity have suddenly become true.
Each organization is straddled with the challenge of managing vendors and operations to keep the production going, have a motivated and productive manpower working in line with the organizational objectives, technology and new means of creating new channels of reaching their intended customers. Above everything, organisations have been faced with new realities of why it exists, who all are its stakeholders and where does it go from here
All this needs to have a redefining purpose and orientation of business and backing it up with credible action. Functions like manufacturing and supply chains have to embrace new technologies to perfect new networks and production facilities to produce the better quality product at lower costs. HR would need to device ways and means of using latest tools to recruit right talent and then use the latest to motivate and get the best fr om them. Marketing and Sales would need to devise ways to reach out to the potential customers through the right medium to make maximum impact and then look at re calibrating its sales channels to provide customer delight in the sales and after-sales service
The organisation would need to be refreshed and realigned to the new realities and would need to turn this adversity into an opportunity to usher in much awaited changes in its outlook and orientation. T o fast forward technology adaptation, to re energise its workforce as per the new realities and needs and skill them accordingly , work closely and to the benefit of all its stakeholders.
