Tutti ormai si sono ormai pronunciati, hanno dato ricette su come affrontare il Covid 19 e hanno indicato le azioni da intraprendere, “sentendosi come Gesù nel tempio”, così ci avrebbe forse ricordato Fabrizio De André. Sono passati alcuni mesi dall’inizio di questa pandemia. Qualcuno pensa di esserne già fuori, mentre qualcun altro avverte che non è così e qualcun altro ancora fa per cercare di reagire. Ma cosa fare? Fare va bene. Ma va anche bene, prima di scelte strategiche drastiche, attendere di esserne veramente fuori. Così l’eventuale decisione di convertire la produzione in produzione di mascherine o darsi alle attività di sanificazione, sono interventi ponte, di emergenza per arrivare con un po’ più di tranquillità alla prossima nuova normalità: no panic!!!

Ebbene, in questa direzione alcuni spunti interessanti sono offerti da una raccolta di articoli messa a disposizione gratuitamente dall’Harvard Business Review. Sono i seguenti sedici articoli suddivisi in tre macro-sezioni:
