Is it too soon to plan for #Brexit?
Whatever way #Brexit unfolds, Ireland is one of the countries most affected, possibly even more so than Britain itself. Because of this, Irish businesses, both north and south, need to implement urgent and unavoidable process changes, over and above their normal business operations. This is likely to lead to overload or emergency, unless the necessary resources are applied AND the planning starts soon enough, even before it becomes clear what specifically needs to be done.
This is different from traditional projects, where the objectives are usually visible by the time the planning begins. In the case of #Brexit, where the implementation date was slipped twice and it may even not take place, the time for this pre-planning is “as soon as possible”.
This situation corresponds to Scatterwork’s core expertise area of Project Implementation, based on which the BrexitEscapeRoom has been developed. This is a hands-on, dynamic and collaborative workshop for SMEs, combining both training and consultancy.
Participants come with (some idea of) WHAT needs to be done, based on their knowledge of their business, advice from government and EU agencies, trade associations, banks, professional advisors etc.
They take away a thorough #Brexit implementation plan, which they can use to delegate the work and get critical support from customers, suppliers and staff.
Usually the benefits for Scatterwork’s clients are far in excess of the costs (all business is like this) but because the impact of #Brexit is likely to be so great, government grants which can be applied to reduce the cost even further are being offered:
- Companies based in the Republic can apply for a Be Prepared Grant from Enterprise Ireland
- Companies based in the North can apply for a Brexit: Planning Voucher from InterTradeIreland
