It's no secret that I'm a big fan of military history, of war strategists like Hannibal, Philip of Macedon, Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar. Winning relies on understanding your enemy, his strengths and weaknesses, preparation, anticipation, flexibility and adaptation.
Military generals are trained to operate under uncertainty and complexity with great pressure, and to make a multitude of quick decisions with fatal consequences - some tactical, to win a battle, and some strategic, to win a war.
The current pandemic, with its unprecedented scale, complexity and severity, is no different. Like traditional warfare, it requires a unique playbook and new operating models.
What follows is a list of lessons learned from past military histories, applied to business.
If you are a business leader or manager preparing for the post-coronavirus future, you need to balance what has worked before with what needs to happen to succeed in the next phase of the new normal.
1-Stop believing that the good old days will return
2. Focus on leading change and adapting to the new environment
3. Create a culture of team performance and not focus on individual excellence.
4. Consider reorganizing your workforce to meet the new demands. Consider the remote workforce as a partial solution
5. Accelerate best practices in delegation, collaboration, flexibility and accountability
6. Accelerate decision making and improve execution
7. Diversify your supply chain (from single source to just-in-case sources)
8. Make resilience and innovation your next big thing
9. Reallocate additional budgets for technology and soft skills training
10. Accelerate digital transformation, evolve and embrace it beyond the crisis, as part of the new normal
