In approaching various organizations’ business disruptions, CohnReznick has created a rapid response framework – NOW. NEXT. NEW. This agile process helps identify priorities for immediate action, so that each organization can remediate the disruptions endangering its enterprise and start planning for a new way of conducting business. 

NOW – The part of the framework that’s most urgent – including addressing the organizational risks listed above. For some organizations, addressing the NOW will be a matter of survival. CohnReznick focuses energies on the critical factors related to cash, communication, and control that are needed to manage through the immediate uncertainty, set priorities, and move toward stabilizing the business of the organization. 

NEXT – Transition from the urgent focus needed to stabilize the organization’s survival to the actions that will frame the success of the organization in the coming months and years. CohnReznick helps organizations focus on the key processes, technologies, products, supply chain issues, and other priorities that will shape the NEXT stage of the organization’s business.

NEW – In a new post-disruption business environment, leadership will need to take action and revisit decisions as if they were NEW.  From finding capital sources to leading a primarily remote workforce to determining an evolved long-term strategy, CohnReznick’s framework rapidly allows organizations to find the path needed for the mid-term and long-term, providing the expertise and guiding hand needed to operate in a post-disruption business environment.
