From Budgets to Decision Making, Creating Certainty in Uncertain Times

how to deal with business uncertainty

As the old adage goes, the only constant is change. 

The fact is, we deal with uncertainty every day. Opportunity or challenge could be right around the corner. No matter what is happening in your world, or the greater world, taking time to ensure your operations are running efficiently just makes good business sense. This is no less true when times are good, and it might be easy to lose sight of the fundamentals that help drive success. These flush periods provide an excellent opportunity to review systems and processes that can help unearth areas for improvement. 

This exercise is no less relevant in times of challenge, which must always be anticipated. Unknowns are growing, particularly in our interconnected, global reality. Circumstances previously thought to be a world away, or another industry’s problem may now be everyone’s concern as they ripple through economies, supply chains, even neighborhoods. Smaller businesses are not immune from these global pressures. In fact, they may be even more exposed than their larger counterparts and struggle harder to weather downturns. 

While you can’t control everything, the good news is you don’t have to in order to mitigate the effects of uncertainty. In fact, the equation for success is remarkably simple.
