What's important now and some ideas to consider on how to plan for the mid-term and long term

However, providing frequent forecasts and preparing the many different scenarios that the business expect is taxing many finance and operation teams’ processes, systems and data. The business leaders we’re talking to say they want three things:  

  1. To address the near-term needs of the business
  2. Learn from this experience so they are better prepared next time 
  3. To have confidence in the numbers
