Develop contingency plans, says Gartner

Anticipating unstable relations between China and Japan, Gartner has issued a new report encouraging enterprises to develop contingency plans for reducing dependency on products and services from northeast Asia.

The report analyses three possible scenarios with different degrees of severity: The first is when business returns to almost as usual; the second is for continued uncertainty and volatility; and the last when there is a continued escalation of tension.

By leveraging the insight provided by these scenarios, companies based in China, Japan and the rest of the world can examine possible outcomes and prepare for action in case one or more elements of a scenario become reality.
