The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about a devastating effect on the economy with serious disruption to both supply and demand, and in particular supply chains. Businesses and workers are at risk of losing incomes as confidence in the economy plummets from the economic fallouts. Businesses can no longer afford to go about as “business as usual” as revenue has been falling since the beginning of the year and most so with the pandemic. SMEs that employed 68% of the labour force will face imminent closure. To survive the pandemic, owners and management of still “viable” businesses must act fast as not to become another casualty of the pandemic. This should include a comprehensive analysis of the situation; formulating measures and culminating into a plan to be executed in a timely manner.
This program will give participants a quick and comprehensive understanding of the situation at hand, the key issues and available assistance (if any).
Participant will also learn the critical skills in identifying the issues and areas, key cash flow drivers; preparing a business continuity plan and apply such skills and methodologies to do proper planning and effective management of cash resources to survive the financial crisis brought about by the pandemic.
By the end of this program, participants will be able to: -
• Know and understand the issues and impact of the pandemic on the economy, supply chain, business and employment,
• Learn to use cash flow as a key strategy to survive the financial crisis
• Know and understand the critical areas to focus and to craft appropriate strategies to response to the challenge.
• Learn to identify the key drivers of cash flow and use them to create cash flow; and/or to eliminate or reduce cash outflow.
