COVID-19 has severely disrupted the flow of goods and services, decimated entire industries in some cases, created demand surges in others, and introduced unprecedented uncertainty in how to respond. During these precarious times, companies need to adapt and plan how to position their organizations to either rebound or sustain growth.
