Why Proactivity is Always a Better Strategy than Reactivity

Why Proactivity is Always a Better Strategy than Reactivity

When it comes to operating a business, there are really only two ways that one can do so… either one acts proactively with their business matters, or they tend to be reactive in their approach. Naturally, one method has shown to be far more effective than the other. Today, we’ll explore the features of each to figure out which will work best for you (spoiler alert: it’s going to be the proactive approach).

Let’s dive into how each approach typically plays out for the businesses that adopt them.

A Reactive Approach

An organization that reacts to external factors would be referred to as reactive. New competition opens up? Looks like it’s time to improve upon efficiency. Is the economy experiencing a rough patch? Maybe we should scale back on our spending.

The big problem with this methodology is that it leaves a business a few steps behind, which makes it vulnerable to larger issues. Instead of being ready to handle any competition, a business that acts reactively will be forced to play catch-up, which means that the business will never quite reach its full potential.

A Proactive Approach

On the other hand, you have a business that anticipates changes, whether they would be detrimental to their business or beneficial, and plans for them accordingly. A proactive business will analyze the data they have access to as a means of predicting what trends are likely to emerge, and will often prepare for multiple eventualities... just in case.

Keeping a data backup, maintaining it offsite and in keeping with the best practices we recommend, that’s an example of a proactive behavior. Managed services are proactive by their very nature, as you have to anticipate an issue to know to look out for it.
