2011 was a momentous year: Brisbane suffered a catastrophic flood, my husband and I got married and spent a wonderful honeymoon in France, I won a scholarship to Harvard Business School and I wrote my first book, Pivot Point: making the decisions that matter in business. It was a time before the word 'pivot' was in vogue.
2020 is another momentous year. In recent months everyone is talking about how they need to 'pivot'. What does this mean for you?
It may mean that you've had an unexpected shutdown of your operations with an indefinite timeline for reopening. Or, you may have had to ramp up to meet escalating demand. Both are stressful. Both require a re-think of the way you do things and a re-set of strategic priorities. Whether you're ramping up or ramping down, now may be a necessary time to pivot.
In my book, Pivot Point, you'll find a straightforward framework to guide you through the key decisions required to change direction or re-frame your strategy under your current circumstances.
I've made Pivot Point available in pdf as a free download. I hope you'll find it valuable and if you have any questions, please be in touch.
