The Coronavirus Pandemic or COVID-19 has thrust the world into a completely unexpected new reality and many of us are still in the shock and denial phase.
As organizations move through the change curve and finally start to recognize that this reality may be with us longer than we would like, the prospect of having to make some really hard decisions and adjustments as a business becomes more and more real.
