We have to plan the reopening. It is time to carefully evaluate: what worked and what didn't? to face the prolonged challenge of Covid19. (Go directly to Review)
The business world changed overnight with the arrival of Covid19. Within days, companies were forced to shut down their operations and rethink their operational models. In this shift, Zoom, WhatsApp, Dropbox, iCloud, Googledocs resolved the emergency to facilitate remote work and maintain communication. However, now seeing that it will take time to develop a remedy or vaccine against the coronavirus, we have to evaluate and plan for reopening.
It is time to review the operational, cultural, legal, and health implications of how we are integrating technology into work. We must carefully evaluate: what worked and what did not? The company's strategic planning should broadly integrate the use of technology, considering how best to face the prolonged challenge of Covid19. With good planning, we not only adapt operations to social distancing and teleworking, but also prepare the company to face the interruptions that the next hurricane or emergency could bring.
At Altamente, we have spent over a decade combining technology with business anthropology to ensure that the integration of new technologies strengthens the competitiveness, resilience, and business intelligence of our clients. In solidarity with the business community, we offer a review tool that will help organizations review established practices and create or adapt their Technology and Telework Policy, and define training.
