Tech Companies: 4 Key Steps to Plan for Stabilisation and Survival During COVID-19

Tech Companies: 4 Key Steps to Plan for Stabilisation and Survival During COVID-19

Michael Hogan

Businesses across the technology industry are being significantly impacted by our current economic disruption and restrictive global environment. Regardless of how established tech companies are, they are having to re-evaluate how they manage and operate their business, including revisiting their strategic business plans.

Younger startups face particular challenges. Unfortunately, they often can be “taken out” in times like these, as they typically have scarce cash reserves and a smaller margin for managing sudden slumps. However, with intelligent and fast pivots, young companies can make it through.

Whatever growth stage your business is at, you need to be ready and willing to adapt to a new set of rules and leverage the following steps to alleviate risks and survive the slowdown caused by COVID-19. Here are four key actions to take:

1. Conduct a strategic assessment to understand where you are today and what a “new tomorrow” may need to look like.

Many companies are in what we call a strategic moment. Ask yourself: Where are we now? Where are we headed? And how are we going to get to our desired business result? Companies should tap the participation of all internal stakeholders to seek answers to these questions and conduct an assessment.

2. Perform a 13-week cash flow analysis.

This cash flow analysis can be game changing to a company that is in financial distress. A distressed company must be able to determine what costs they need to cut in order to achieve a cash-neutral position as soon as possible. Much of a young company’s success rests on having a clear picture of where they will be over the next 13 weeks.

3. Build a plan not to fail.

Build a six-month strategic operating plan that includes toggles, off-ramps and on-ramps in case things don’t work as expected. If you aren’t able to achieve the desired savings in one department, for example, what are alternative areas that you can pause or cut? The plan should be aggressive and serve as a conservative starting point toward achieving a desired business result of 25% to 30% in overall cost reductions. (Yes, 25% to 30% in overall cost reductions.)

By basing your strategic operating plan on a conservative starting point, you will save yourself from “death by a thousand cost reduction cuts.” This will allow you to evaluate business units and other large cost centers for savings and efficiencies, rather than moving from one small cost cut to another until you end up in the same place with a 30% cut but essentially have demoralized your organization to get there.

4. Bring in an objective set of eyes.

One of the most impactful actions you can take during this time is to hire a third-party advisor. In times of crisis, business leaders are often too deep in the forest to make objective decisions for their organizations. An outside advisor can provide objective reviews and advice on how to manage the company during the turmoil and help you build a go-forward plan. A third party can also be a significant confidence builder for your investor and stakeholder relationships. (Look for an advisor with deep experience in the tech industry.)

COVID-19’s impact is one of the most complicated and concerning situations we’ve ever faced, and it is continuing to evolve. As companies navigate this uncharted landscape, we will continue to share insights, guidance and best practices that hopefully will help make this incredibly complex and uncertain environment more manageable.

After falling victim to a cryptocurrency investment scam, my family and I were left with nothing after these swindlers stole $107,000 in USDT and Bitcoins from us. We were so lucky to come across a post about Cyberwall Fire, a cryptocurrency and funds recovery company with plenty of experience in cybersecurity. Cyberwall Fire was able to recover all of our funds, and with the information we provided, they were tracked down and reported to the appropriate authorities. I highly recommend Cyberwall Fire for your cryptocurrency recovery.

I was impatient to carry out necessary research but I really wanted to jump on the crypto trading and investment buzz. Unfortunately for me, I invested 75,700 GBP worth of bitcoin with a fraudulent company. I was happy to watch my account grow to 214,575 GBP within a couple of weeks. But I didn't realize I was dealing with a scam company, until I tried to make an attempt to withdraw. I made a withdrawal request, and noticed my account was suddenly blocked for no apparent reason. I tried contacting customer support, but all to no avail. I needed my money back at all cost, because I couldn't afford to let it go. So I tried all possible means to make sure I recovered my scammed bitcoin. I did a lot of online search for help, and tried to see if there were other people who had any similar experience. I stumbled upon a cryptocurrency forum were a couple of people mentioned that they had been through the same process but were able to recover their lost cryptography funds with the help of Brain. So I file a report on CryptocyberNet @ Gmail {}com and he was able to help me get back all my lost funds within 1 weeks I feel indebted to him. Apart from trying to express my gratitude to them once again using this medium, I will recommend anybody who wants to recover scammed bitcoin, stolen cryptocurrency, funds lost to binary options forex, investment and any other form of online scam to reach out to CryptocyberNet @ Gmail all the best.

I need to share this in here so you won’t lose your money cheaply to scam brokers. I invested about $455,000 on a binary option platform then I decided to withdraw after several weeks but the withdrawal wasn’t successful, then I tried to contact the platform via email and phone number, I didn’t get a response from them that was when everything started looking weird. Some weeks later I got a mail from them insisting I should invest more money if I want to withdraw my money which I rejected, and I never hear from them again that was when I knew I had been scammed. I was really devastated at those moment and felt so bad that my hard earned money was gone. After some months I came across a lot of testimonies on the web how DONALDCYBERLORD at gmail, c0m had helped many people recovered their stolen, scammed or duped money on bitcoin or any other form in digital currency. I contacted them and they promised to help me get my money back asked me some info about the scammer which I provided.

I caught my wife cheating on me with my friend. This literally broke my heart when I found out by hire DONALDCYBERLORD via gmail. com to remotely gain access to my wife’s phone so I could see her text messages and WhatsApp messages too.
One fateful morning while my wife was getting ready for work, a text came in on her phone and I saw “hey babe, can’t wait to see you on friday 💕”.she had my friend’s name saved as another name. Unfortunately, she wasn’t there atm but her phone was locked and I didn’t have access to her phone.
This made me really suspicious because she had told me earlier in the week she was going on a business trip so I knew immediately she was cheating on me 💔. I remember going online immediately to search how to spy on a cheating spouse phone and I somehow landed on a forum where they recommended DONALDCYBERLORD via gmail. com as a private investigator and how he can remotely access device.
In summary, I contacted Donaldcyberlord and told him about my situation. Gave him some details about my wife and that was all he needed to gain remote access for me. After 4hours, he gave me access to her WhatsApp message and Message/text messages as well. I read all their conversations and how they have even been mocking me in their chat. I printed all their chats for evidence.
