Market turmoil has sparked fears of a recession caused by COVID-19. To gain insight into future paths, business leaders need to pay close attention to market signals across asset classes, but also look outside the market for recession and recovery patterns, as well as the history of epidemics and shocks.
The risk of COVID-19 is considered so aggressive across various asset classes that some people fear a recession in the global economy is an induced consequence. Triggering incidents will rapidly set off a chain reaction in an interlocked global economy.
The effect of this pandemic has caused many businesses to fail, for example: Travel industry, entertainment industry, stores. And, of course, these industries will consult in various chain reactions to other economic aspects of business.
Some organizations are much better than others at managing this level of uncertainty. Even some of them are successful. They find opportunities where others don't and support their organization so they can anticipate fluctuations early and return sooner. These companies enjoy what we call the "uncertainty advantage." With data, processes, commitment, and the right mindset, other people can build these advantages in their organizations too.
Businesses bounce back and strive even better than before, for example: F&B (online promos, ready to cook meals), in-store shops (online shops), and hospitality (staycation promos)
Almost all companies do multivariate models. Nearly all have protocols to reduce risk and anticipate exposure, and nearly all have business continuity plans to provide operational flexibility. However, the reality is that many organizations do not approach these aspects in the right way. They place a lot of emphasis on the short term and rely heavily on familiar patterns to the detriment of counter-intuitive.
As expectations keep changing, the priority for most leaders is to get through the next few months and quarters. Few companies have the courage to consider making a bolder directional correction or looking for a silver line in an economic downturn that could see their business achieve even greater long-term success.
Analysis by BCG found that there are three sources of uncertainty advantages which can construct your advantages in uncertainty. Those are:
To overcome disadvantages, companies just need to become better at detecting signals and more decisive in acting on them, and more proactive in building practices. Crisis shows a tendency for companies to step back. By detecting signals, imagining what the world will be like in 3 to 5 years, and what it will take to win the future, organizations are not in the practice of activating their workforce in dire situations and adjusting performance over the years.
