Having responded to the initial COVID-19 crisis, many organizations are turning attentions to recovery—a phase focusing not only on reducing costs, but on developing capabilities to help the business thrive beyond the crisis. Building upon lessons learned over the past months, organizations now have an opportunity to prepare for the “new normal.” We’ll discuss:
- Recalibrating resources, expenses, and security.
- Identifying savings and efficiencies within their technology portfolio.
- Adopting new technologies and improved process operations.
