6-Week Covid-19 Support Program Overview

We have developed a 6-week program which takes businesses through each step of our three-stage framework for responding to Covid-19

Our 6-week program starts with a lauch week, where we rapidly gain the necessary overview and supporting context of your business, and work with you to develop a business continuity plan. We also identified any areas that require immediate attention, and tailor the remainder of the program to meet the specific needs of your business.

In the next stage, we focus on Securing Near-Term Viability. This involves the development of a cashflow scenario model to assess potential cashflow shortfalls under a range of scenarios relating to the length and severity of the Covid-19 revenue impact. These shortfalls can be compared with available funding sources (including potential Government support packages) to assess the extent of any funding gap. Our repository of mitigating actions (to lessen the impact on revenue, take out cost, and manage working capital) can be referenced to identify a suitable strategy for your specific business context. From this, any "quick win" actions can be prioritised to drive an immediate cashflow benefit.

 

We then focus on the delivery of the mitigating actions, via our proprietary strategic delivery planning framework. This is designed to support the planning, delivery and tracking stages of each initiative. In our experience, particularly in turnaround or performance improvement situations, it is critical to have an up-to-date understanding of which parts of a plan are falling behind schedule, or under-delivering on the anticipated benefits. This ensures appropriate corrective action can be undertaken before a signficant cash shortfall arises.

Our 6 week Covid-19 Support Program concludes with a finalisation week. In addition to reviewing the progress of the program, and identifying any additional actions that are required, this is also an opportunity to consider the medium-term outlook, and position the business for success.
