In Covid-hit world, strategy leaders are trying to navigate through business uncertainties. These uncertainties have touched every aspect of the business landscape ranging from internal factors such as project delays to external factors such as supply chain, customers, and competition. It is becoming increasingly critical for them to proactively observe market changes and develop scenario-based business plans.
