Prices and Supply go Hand in Hand. These issues seem to be different, but they really are not. Inflation is caused by an increase in demand as consumers and businesses are motivated to buy now because they believe prices will continue to increase. 

Current fuel prices are driven by changes in the global economy and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The baby formula shortage is a result of a plant shutdown and government’s weak response.

  3. Determine how each updated CATEGORY – should change because of the current economic conditions.
  4. Develop a new set of goals and objectives based on the new SWOT to “steady the ship” and assure yourself that your organization will meet its profit goals.
  5. Now set the plan into action – A new Execution Plan for your New Strategic Plan for the balance of year.

This new plan may require you to change the product/service offering, staffing, hours of operation, and selling/closing of key real estate.
