At my place of business, when the world went into lockdown, we immediately began planning, strategizing and communicating — creating a framework for our go-forward operations.

The idea of creating a framework during a pandemic could be met with skepticism. Some may think, "There's absolutely no way any of us can predict consumer behavior or economic trends for the foreseeable future. What's the point of sharing projections that will likely change?"

That's true. We very well may be incorrect in setting certain expectations, plans or numbers. But the value of setting forth a framework is not being able to navigate perfectly with no adjustments along the way. The value is really strategic and forward progress, team cohesion, and confidence in leadership.
