How to be effective decision-makers in the time of COVID

In the last few weeks since the outbreak of COVID-19, risk and crisis management are THE HOT TOPICS.

All companies went into “crisis management mode”.

Some executed their business contingency plan, while others that didn’t have one, just improvised crisis management plans.

A lot of significant decisions are being made in companies: decisions around how to operate in the new conditions, where to cut costs, how to stay afloat, how to communicate with employees, etc…

Business leaders are evaluating several scenarios to identify the best decisions to be made.
