"Three Actions CFOs Should Consider In Planning For Economic Uncertainty"

From Wealth Advisor:

* Uncertainty makes it difficult for business executives to plan, but companies cannot stop planning just because the outlook is uncertain. In some ways, it’s more important to plan so as to limit the number of variables outside your control.

"How Reskilling Can Soften the Economic Blow of Covid-19"

From Harvard Business Review:

* Many governments have focused on providing special unemployment benefits to laid-off workers. However, few programs have tried to train and entice workers to switch over to understaffed sectors of the economy. To be sure, this approach is not a magic bullet — in the past months, consumer demand has dropped dramatically, meaning that some reductions in the workforce were inevitable, making unemployment assistance a necessity. Nonetheless, there has been a missed opportunity to help rebalance demand and supply for labor at a critical time, which could soften the blow for many workers.


"3 Supply Chain Mistakes Small Businesses Make

Good product business leaders understand all aspects of where crucial supplies come from."

From Inc.

* Building a business is a demanding endeavor. For small- to midsize-business (SMB) leaders, the list of responsibilities feels endless. The demands of building a high-performing brand, hiring the best talent, and rapidly expanding into new markets often preclude consideration of critical functions like supply chain. But as recent global events like the Covid-19 pandemic have highlighted, the supply chain is the foundation of any product business and must be a priority, rather than an afterthought. Without a clear picture of how suppliers operate, companies are vulnerable to unnecessary expenses, delays, and disruptions.

Here are the top three supply chain mistakes we see high-velocity brands make, and a few easy steps to help avoid them.
