Coming Back Stronger: Managing the People Side of Covid -- George Westerman
The Covid crisis accelerated many changes already underway with digital transformation. It also introduced huge amounts of uncertainty for managers and workers. In this talk, we’ll discuss how leaders can help the company, and its employees, to emerge successfully from the crisis. We’ll share research-driven insights on how you can build a more digital-ready culture that responds quickly to fast-changing conditions, how a transformative model of Learning and Development is ideally suited for the current reality, and how today’s challenges can position you to drive digital transformation more powerfully than ever before.
