Recession? Time to strengthen your company

Who’s got time to worry about building a stronger organisation in a downturn? Surely executives can’t focus on internal issues when they face so many other pressing matters?

But this is exactly the time when leaders need to ensure their organisations are performing well, so that important decisions get made and executed quickly and effectively.

Turbulence offers a rare chance to bring in new talent and improve the way that organisations function.

The trouble is that companies under duress often lack the organisational capabilities to meet mounting challenges. Some make snap decisions. Others stall, unable to decide. Yet others badly need new people to bring fresh perspectives or help them overhaul dysfunctional cultures.

Strengthening the organisation is one of the most powerful levers any company can pull to improve its performance in a downturn. It starts by asking a series of questions:

  1. What are the critical decisions in this downturn?
  2. Do we need to adjust our organisational structure to address them effectively?
  3. How should our roles and processes change?
  4. Will our most experienced people be able to make and execute key decisions?
  5. Which aspects of our culture reinforce decision effectiveness, and which don’t?

Adopting this “decision lens” is the single most important step that a company can take to improve its performance.

It helps leaders focus their efforts where they will have the most impact during a downturn and accelerate growth when the economy improves.

1) Identifying the critical decisions

Every company has its critical decisions. If your business is in relatively good shape, those decisions may not have changed much. Some will be the big choices, like whether to acquire a competitor or invest in a new product. Others may be everyday frontline decisions.

Toyota, for example, achieved its leading position partly through its reputation for manufacturing quality. To maintain that quality, the carmaker ensures that workers in every plant know how to make and execute the right quality-related decisions.

These decisions are as important now as when Toyota was growing rapidly.

If you are in survival mode, your critical decisions will be different, such as whether to sell a stake or overhaul the business model.

2) Testing the structure

Sometimes structure is a serious obstacle to making and executing a business’ critical decisions.

In that case, structure must change.

Previously, Hewlett-Packard’s sales force was organised by customers while its manufacturing units were organised by products. With stalled decisions and people working at cross purposes, performance suffered.

The IT firm then moved to a product-based structure across the entire company, with accountabilities for decisions clearly defined. That created the conditions for better decision-making and execution, which in turn generated higher profits.

3) Clarifying roles and processes

Whatever a company’s structure, decision roles need to be clear. Unless people know who is responsible for making and executing critical decisions, stress on an organisation will only increase.

The individual or team responsible for a Recommendation gathers relevant information and proposes a course of action.

  • People with Input responsibilities help shape a recommendation so it is operationally practical and financially feasible.
  • An executive who must Agree is anyone who needs to sign off, often a legal or regulatory compliance officer.
  • Eventually, one person will Decide. Assigning the “D” to one individual ensures single-point accountability.
  • The final role in the process involves the people who will Perform or execute the decision.

Clear decision roles are essential amid turbulence. They can boost performance by unclogging bottlenecks and cutting the organisation’s cycle time.

4) Right people in right roles

In good times, companies focus on managing growing organisations. In a recession, the logic changes. Many companies cut costs through layoffs and attrition.

But the people who leave are not always the poorest performers. Those who stay may not have the skills to make and execute decisions. And companies often fail to consider who they might hire to bolster their capabilities.

In a downturn, no company can afford to have the wrong people in key decision roles.

At one IT company, we found that more than 40% of the managers identified as high performers were in non-critical positions. Meanwhile, fewer than 40% in mission-critical roles were top performers. The senior team quickly corrected the mismatch, and business performance immediately improved.

The key to making the best use of people is a robust, effective, performance-management system that has real consequences.

5) Actively managing the culture

Culture underpins an organisation’s decisions. But cultures change and are particularly susceptible to change when an organisation is in crisis.

In a downturn, leaders need to take action to keep a strong culture from deteriorating – or to transform a culture that hinders good decisions.

Understanding that its culture is a competitive advantage, Southwest Airlines reinforces it in hard times.

In the early stages of the current recession, it maintained staff loyalty (through no involuntary job cuts) and invested in upgrading customer service. The carrier continues to be one of the US leaders for on-time performance, an aspect of the business that customers care deeply about.

A strong organisation is not optional, something to worry about after the crisis. Your organisation’s strength will greatly affect how well your company weathers the storm.

It will also strongly improve your chances for growth once the storm passes.

4 STEPS TO GROWTH DURING A RECESSION

Can companies actually grow stronger during a recession? What can they do to capitalize on the problems that their rivals encounter during tough economic times? Suppose you have a sturdy balance sheet, low debt, and plentiful amounts of cash. How can you employ these strengths to take on rivals who have been weakened considerably?

Reminded of the importance of considering these questions in Steve Jobs’ recent quotes about Apple’s strategy in the days and months ahead. Jobs promises to expand the firm’s research and development efforts this year, even if economic growth does turn negative. Here is what he told Fortune magazine a few weeks ago, reflecting on the last recession as well as the current economic climate: “In fact we were going to up our R&D budget so that we would be ahead of our competitors when the downturn was over. And that’s exactly what we did. And it worked. And that’s exactly what we’ll do this time.” Of course, Apple sits in an enviable position. They have an impressive balance sheet, mountains of cash, and no debt. If your firm also finds itself in such a position of strength, remember that it too can use the recession to become even stronger relative to the competition.

Here are four steps your company should consider now:

  1. Invest heavily in research and development now so that new products and services are ready for launch as the economy begins to grow again. Your competitors may be inclined to cut R&D, particularly if they face high interest payments, substantial drops in revenue, and the like. If so, your acceleration of investment now will yield a strong product advantage in the coming years.

 

  1. Spend some time learning about the customers of your weakest competitors. You might be inclined to go after their largest and most attractive clients. However, be aware that your rivals are probably working desperately to save those customers. They might not, however, have the time and resources to focus on smaller clients. Focus your attention on these potential new customers, particularly those with attractive growth prospects and strong balance sheets.

 

  1. Identify your most critical suppliers and distributors, and determine if any face the possibility of severe impairment to their business due to the economic downturn. Assess the risk to your business if they should falter badly or even fail completely. Then, examine ways in which you might help those supplies and distributors weather the downturn. Even the smallest gesture can sometimes build an enduring loyalty that will pay off for years to come.

 

  1. Think carefully about your talent needs. As weak companies lay off employees, many good people will find themselves searching for work. Other skilled workers may still have a job, but they may be disenchanted with their struggling firms. Capitalize on this opportunity to identify and attract talented employees, while slack exists in the labour market.
