Effective Planning for Unexpected Delays

Effective Planning for Unexpected Delays

The past two years have flown by - You have made it through oil spills, backed-up container ships, labor shortages, soaring freight costs, supply of basic raw materials on hold, and everything else thrown at you. So, what's next? How do you continue to pick yourselves up loss after loss? There are ways to plan when you don't know what the future holds. You can prepare for the future without predicting it, and Component Packaging can help.

How can you plan out the rest of your year if you don't know what tomorrow holds?

Planning out the rest of 2022 might be overwhelming. Is it safe to plan a year ahead? Two quarters at a time? One month in advance? Staying ahead is essential for your business.

In the current disruptive environment of the world today, the best way to prepare your business for the future is to make your planning a continuous process. Reevaluating your plans and making minor adjustments regularly will help your company adjust to changes quicker. Build, measure, and learn with each step. Make sure your plan has a system for sudden shifts in place. Does your company know what to do when a customer alters their behavior or your competitor's actions change? What happens when your supplier is backed up for months? Knowing your next steps when problems arise will put you one step ahead of your competitors and keep your business agile.  

While you can't predict, you can prepare.

You can't predict the contingencies your company will face, but you can do your best to prepare for any roadblock that might occur. Outlining your worst case, base case, and best case, and creating a detailed plan to fall back on for all three scenarios is a safe and effective option for any organization. You can choose to set clear, smart goals for your company. It could be time to explore potential alternatives to your business model. What can you change that could potentially better your business? Is there someone you could partner with to ultimately better improve your processes? Are there valuable partnerships our business can create?  Enter Component Packaging.
