Responding to COVID-19: Closing Factories is the Easy Part

It’s difficult to keep up with the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation and the shifting priorities resulting. We’ve gone from containment to mitigation to “shelter in place,” and from protecting plants and factories to shutting them down virtually overnight. The bad news? Shutting them down is the easy part.

The biggest mistake operational and digital leaders can make now is to assume that in 2-3 weeks everything will go back to the way it was and begin operating again as “normal.”  Instead, they must start planning today for potentially far worse scenarios – while hoping for the best case.

We recently hosted a roundtable with LNS Research analysts, clients and leaders from industrial companies to discuss how leading industrial companies are responding to the COVID-19 crisis, sharing best practices and preparing for the “new normal.” Simply fill out the form to gain access to the full roundtable presentation and recorded discussion.
