7 Steps To Recession-Proof Your Business

7 Steps To Recession-Proof Your Business

Assuming the economists are right (well, at least half of them), there’s a recession ahead. In the spirit of “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst,” here’s a brief summary of a business guide from Oracle Netsuite called, “7 Steps To Recession-Proof Your Business: Positioning for upside during a slow down.”

The 18-page publication offers graphs, data, advice, examples, and practical suggestions, such as “Metrics That Matter More During a Recession,” “8 Do’s and Don’ts of Cost Cutting,” and “3 Ways To Score Automation Wins.” Links to additional resources are also included.

As noted in the guide’s introduction, “Even if a recession never materializes, many of these measures can make your business more resilient and ready for nearly any circumstance.” And, “Don’t wait until all you can do is slash spending and schedule layoffs. Start now with these seven steps, and set your company up to weather whatever may come next.”

  1. Assess your cash flow and implement rolling forecasts
  2. Develop tiered forecasts with proactive, yet surgical cuts
  3. Launch a customer segment analysis exercise
  4. Reevaluate your supply chain—again
  5. Reevaluate inventory management strategies
  6. Use automation to refocus workers on higher-value tasks
  7. Harness technology for scenario, cash flow, and other planning

Think you’re too busy to work on these things right now? Think again. The report concludes, “There’s another saying to remember: Fix the roof when the sun is shining. Restructuring when everyone is paddling as hard as they can is painful. So start working now to ensure your business is ready to ride out the storm.”

And finally, from late 2020—and a third old saying: There’s nothing new under the sun—an article we ran in late 2020 called “Recession-Proofing Your System for an Economic Downturn.
