Most people fear change. It’s a part of human nature to be afraid of doing things differently to what they’re used to.
Many enterprises also fear change for much the same reason. But with business being such
a dynamic environment with factors such as new technologies, emerging competitors and changing regulations just to name a few, companies need to be able to adapt and change as necessary.
Business transformation is an area that Lime Intelligence specialises in, led by partner Matt Dyer who has worked extensively on business transformation projects for multi-million dollar businesses over the past 25 years.
In late 2019/early 2020, Lime Intelligence was commissioned by Nelson Airport to complete an air freight demand study. The purpose being to collate relevant secondary data available and combine this with primary research of key primary producers in the region.
This report has been a key enabler for the airport to actively engage with airlines during COVID-19 and how to focus energy on potential freight growth.
Being well received by airlines, Nelson airport team has been able to assess air freight potential and understand the supply chain networks and key players in various primary producer groups and share this with airlines.
Coming out of COVID we are being asked more questions with limited resources.
Build a data culture that sets you up for a ‘new norm’ post COVID?
As we move to life beyond COVID it is more critical than ever to instill a culture within your organisation (big or small!) of harnessing data to make better decisions.
Drawing on previous case studies from major global ‘shock’ events can assist in giving us some insights.
While no one can accurately predict the next few months, what we can draw on is lessons from past global events and how long it took our robust and agile aviation and tourism industries to ‘bounce back’.
COVID-19 is unlike anything we’ve witnessed before as it is on such a global scale, but among the uncertain times, case studies give us historical evidence to work with and focus!
And the good news is that in the past, once the ‘shock’ has passed, the recovery has generally been rapid.
