CFO Insights: COVID-19 checklist – Practical steps for the immediate, midterm, and long term, Part II

Published on: Jun 09, 2020

No two black swans look alike, which is partly why it is so hard to see them coming.

While these unforeseen events generally pack a monumentally disruptive punch, they are often viewed through different lenses—and may require different responses.

In a previous edition of CFO Insights, we outlined six responses—actually imperatives—that CFOs ought to consider amid ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19. Then, based on that framework, we presented five checklists for finance chiefs in a special edition of CFO Insights, on topics ranging from maintaining workforce health to bolstering liquidity.

In this issue, we outline more of the immediate, midterm, and long-term actions that CFOs may want to take. By considering such relevant issues, CFOS may have some of the information they need to recover from this crisis in time.
