Resilience during change affects small businesses too

Over the last few weeks I have had little time to blog. My business has been under threat of disruption due to personal circumstances.

My wife and I have chosen to move our home and one should not underestimate the effort involved. Although still going through negotiations, searching for the perfect house has taken up valuable time and effort. Many will agree that the logistics can be horrendous.

As a business continuity specialist I have set aside some tasks, which do not directly support services to my clients and business associates. Planning ahead to allow myself time and scheduling work has allowed my business to continue unhindered. The sacrifice has been that of reduced networking and resultant decrease in visits to my website. The calculated risk is that of reduced pipeline in coming months for which I must now work hard to avert.

Planning of alternative arrangements and contingencies is simply good sense when introducing personal or business change. In this case people and premises came into consideration with business information being temporally curtailed in a controlled manner. Such risk evaluation and change control is common in big businesses, although less often encountered in smaller companies.

Has your personal situation or business environment faced change recently? Would you be considering risks and introducing precautionary measures before implementing changes? No matter what size a business is or how complex its processes are, there is still a vital need for control over change and potential disruptions.

It’s just good business sense…

Give me a call, or complete the form below, I’ll ask a couple of questions and offer some thoughts, we can then decide the next steps.

With kind regards – Gareth
