In episode 5 of The ‘New Normal’ hosted by Dave Kaufman, Delve Editor-in-Chief Professor Saku Mantere discusses how organizations have responded and adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic: whether universities, governments, or businesses, many responded to the crisis by adapting quickly and performing beyond expectations. Why are some organizations at their best when facing a problem, while others flag? Professor Mantere also addresses the effects of Zoom – and the lack of physical classrooms and workspaces – on organizations, innovation processes, and the future of work in an even more rapidly changing world.
The ‘New Normal’ is a collaboration between journalist Dave Kaufman and Delve, the official thought leadership platform of McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management. Each episode looks in-depth at a different aspect of the new normal that we are all navigating due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
