COVID-19 Action Plan for CIOs


Gartner’s Crisis Management Recommendations

These are extraordinary days.

COVID-19 has presented us with a crisis, the scope and scale of which are challenging health systems, organizations and the global economy.

Gartner’s expert advisors and analysts are doing their part to help. They’ve just published a report featuring a detailed action plan that we believe will help CIOs mitigate the disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

We feel this report includes a thorough set of recommendations for handling today’s major disruption, as well as an action plan for building organizational resilience against future turmoil and preparing for a return to relative normalcy.

Read Gartner’s new Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak: Short- and Long-Term Actions for CIOs report. We think it presents a clear and concise plan that:

  • Identifies the three key operational impacts of the crisis
  • Details actions you can take to minimize your business disruption
  • Offers specific recommendations to help you prepare for rebound and growth

Learn how you can combat the challenges of an increasingly remote workforce, major changes in market demand, and the shortage of verifiable data with which to make well-informed decisions.
