The busy hustle of the world has come to a perennial standstill with COVID-19 fear gripping the universe. The world economy has ground to a halt and at the minimum, the pandemic’s economic impact is projected to slow down global GDP growth throughout Q1 and Q2. Some experts are anticipating a mid-year contraction as well and some have gone the extra mile to predict a serious economic fallout that could last for different lengths of time depending on the sector or industry.

These are the times for businesses and organizations to make critical decisions that make or mar the companies and brands. And helping the leaders of these businesses and organizations to make these critical decisions is Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled tools and solutions.

Types of Critical Decisions

Senior executives in leadership roles or drivers of the industry need to be thoughtful as they make crucial decisions during these troubled times. Decisions ranging from organizations’ staffing levels, sales management, marketing spend controls, supply chain management, and financing. These decisions can be divided into two parts.

  • Decisions related to daily business operations—work-from-home policies, disaster recovery preparations, etc.
  • Decisions that prepare their organizations to respond effectively to the emerging economic impact in 2020 and beyond.

Making the right choices with AI

As mentioned earlier, this is here that artificial intelligence’s role begins. In these unprecedented times call for tough decisions. Instead of making decisions based on emotions or guesswork, predictive analytics can facilitate data-based, objective decision-making.

The decisions these leaders make at this critical juncture will drive the business performance well beyond 2020. To give the organization the best chance of survival and success in this climate, business owners and leaders need to harness the power of AI to make sure that they get things right.
