"The key is not to prioritize what’s in your schedule , but to schedule your priorities (Stephen R Covey)"
To understand current business situations, need to more vigilant to prepare the worst situation. Business leader must be aware what will happen in near future, the 6th sense of business will help organization to survive in the future. One of the important agenda from a leader is to ensure the business strategy workable to make the organization growth and sustain.
In survival mode , Most organization focus on 3 things such as revenue/ sales/production output, cost and employee productivity. Mypersonal opinion, 2 top priorities in the survival mode organization are people and process. From people point of view, Business leader will ensure all members in the organization at any level to be involved in all transition and change management process to make organization better. From the bussiness process point of view , will find out details innovatitve strategies to make business process more simple , effective and efficient and it will be reflected to business outcome.
People point of view :
· How we encourage employee to be more productive ?
o Mindset , competency (Knowledge , Skill and behaviour)
· All Organization members are change management champion
o Always liked kotter approaches to manage transition (create sense of urgency , form a powerful coalition, create vision to change, communicate the vision, remove obstacles , create short term wins, build on the change, anchor the changes in the corporate culture)
Business point of view :
· Create low cost of operation, to be more competitive

With current “unpredictable” business situation, “organization sustainability” become urgent and important. Business leaders will try to have a new inovation strategy to survive and improve business competitiveness. A Business Leader with strong leadership is a must to overcome business situation and make decisions for better future. I do agree with stephen covey , it is not only to prioritize important things in your schedule but to schedule your priorities, keep to compel your priorities to be accomplished...salam pembelajar , learn, action and success (TY)
