From national lockdowns to closed airspace and border, COVID -19 has resulted in unprecedented disruption to the mechanics of most economies, regardless of their size or stage of development. In particular, the erection of these barriers has placed a major strain on the world’s supply chains, including essential linkages relating to food and medicines. While shocks may result in short-term changes to supply chains, some evidence points to the likelihood that the current pandemic may lead to more long-lasting structural shifts.

Context

Beyond the curve:

The Foundation has been closely monitoring the progress of COVID-19 and have shared valuable insights on better understanding the contagion. We have conducted studies on critical issues like an exit strategy, supply chain risk that can disrupt global economies, geopolitical changes that can impact the world order, and also suggest intervention strategies to best mitigate the threat. With coordinated response and a collaborative approach, we can assist organisations to face asymmetric challenges that are beyond the curve.

Objective: 

  •  What is the magnitude of the COVID-19 crisis, and how will it change the way we look at each business ? 

  • What are the likely impacts when customers increasingly digitize the operations , use cloud based services , automate using robotics, and AI

  • What needs to be done to manage the crisis and capture opportunities when scenario planning becomes more complex.
