Book Description

Efficient planning and superior execution against clear objectives is the way companies operate best.

But what happens when the unexpected occurs? Say, an event occurs that throws the status quo into turmoil. What if your business declines by 40% in 1 month, what do you do? Conversely, what if your demand spikes by 50% in just a few months, what then?
