Clean-slate business planning
The COVID-19 pandemic is providing business owners with a unique opportunity that they wouldn’t have had in their normal operating situation. Stepping away from the day-to-day running of a business may seem impossible when business is running as usual, but with this enforced lockdown it is giving owners and managers the chance to not only reflect on their own performance, but look at key areas for business improvement. Read how you can put together a plan here.

Business continuity plan
Now is a good time to look at how you address challenges in your business strategically, so you've got a plan to navigate any disruption. To ensure the long-term sustainability of your business, you should have a plan to ensure you can still conduct business during such times. Xero have some guides and templates here.
