Watch the Toffler Associates on-demand webinar on the coronavirus (COVID-19) for a discussion on how organizations can respond to the spread of the COVID-19 today and position themselves to thrive tomorrow.
In this webinar, we discuss why unpredictability and uncertainty don’t have to go together. By examining a comprehensive view of society and possible behaviors triggered by the spread of the virus, organizations can recognize the potential landscape they will be operating within and plan paths to respond to disruption in that environment. This appreciation of and preparation for the future can create resilient organizations that have greater control over how they are impacted by this event.
We also share how impacts are converging with technological and behavioral trends to create a unique situation today. Finally, we describe how organizations can use scenario planning beyond traditional Business Continuity and Contingency Planning.
