The covid-19 crisis has jolted leaders and organizers into action, accelerating trends that were already in play and triggering new ones. Amid the terrible human toll of the pandemic, some organizations are finding that by working differently they can rise to the occasion and help their employees, customers and even their communities.
Two years ago, relatively few companies considered competencies in crisis management, enterprise agility, cost management, workforce resiliency, innovation or cash flow management as critically important to their business.
Today however most companies are stretching themselves to make the ends meet. While no one can predict when or how the pandemic will end, the lessons these companies are learning as they organize for the future will give them clear advantages as the next normal takes shape.
