Your business is going to encounter change. Fact. No matter how well you plan things, your business will undergo changes, for better or for worse. As your business evolves, it will grow, lose people, gain new personalities, expand across new countries, and face hardships along the way. 
The only constant in life is change, so if you run a business or are starting a new one, you need to be prepared for it. 
 
 
 
At the start of the global pandemic, many organisations were thrown in at the deep end, with a lot of businesses having their workforce suddenly working remotely. Whilst there are some businesses that will have had some experience with this, for many it was unchartered territory. Business owners who now had to accommodate all of their remote working employees brought with it some challenges particularly around communication. 
 
 
 
 
We are living in a world where it has become so easy to connect with each other socially and within a business, but are we using it as effectively as we could? 
 
When it comes to working remotely in the current economic climate, is your business prepared? 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Many organisations and people within those organisations try to find the solution before they know the root of the problem. 
 
Before any solution can be found, understanding what the problems are is key to getting the right resolution that fixes that problem and brings efficiencies over the longer term. 
 
While it can be tempting to jump ahead, you really need to get to the root of the issue if your business is to flourish. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Coronavirus pandemic has caused businesses everywhere to pause and take a break from the days of business as usual. One significant change is that many more employees are working from home. You’ve also likely made modifications and adjustments to your processes and operations, which makes sense due to the shift in policies and restrictions put on companies. 
 
While you may be in a new routine and used to the new normal, you must consider how you’ll act and react once this is all over and the world is unpaused. There will be a lot of work to do, and you must be prepared to juggle these demands and meet the needs of your employees and customers. 
 
 
 
 
 
When it comes to changing the approach your business takes to technology, it can be difficult to know where to start or what matters most of all. However, you need to be careful not to fall into the trap that many businesses do when setting about making these kinds of changes. 
 
It’s important to remember the limitations of technology and what it really takes to make successful changes and transitions to your business. A digital transformation is not just about technology, and that might sound strange at first, but we’ll clear it all up for you below. 
 
 
 
 
 
Technology plays an invaluable and unavoidable role in every business operating in the world today. 
 
No matter the scale of the company in question, there are always going to be a range of technological aids and techniques which are being employed as a means of ensuring that the business operates smoothly. But because of the speed at which these things develop and change, you need to make sure that you are still doing things in the best, most appropriate way possible. 
 
That means changing your approaches, your skillset and your assumptions in the face of a more collaborative technological age. Let’s look at this in some detail. 
 
 
 
The role of IT in business has evolved in a very significant manner over the past 30 years, not least over the last decade. Virtually all companies now utilise and heavily rely on IT in a very big way. 
 
Unfortunately, many of them continue to follow the outdated protocol of running their IT infrastructure as a separate entity. In today’s climate, it simply HAS to be embedded within the company’s DNA. 
 
In order to succeed, businesses must create something, monetise it and maintain its value. In doing so, they can protect their products and services, identify their value and continue to bring in profits. However, the way in which companies create, monetise and retain value changes over time.
