Here are the biggest economic challenges we face over the next 10 years

Source: World Economic Forum
After the 2007-09 financial crisis, the imbalances and risks pervading the global economy were exacerbated by policy mistakes. So, rather than address the structural problems that the financial collapse and ensuing recession revealed, governments mostly kicked the can down the road, creating major 
downside risks that made another crisis inevitable. And now that it has arrived, the risks are growing even more acute. Unfortunately, even if the Greater Recession leads to a lackluster U-shaped recovery this year, an L-shaped “Greater Depression” will follow later in this decade, owing to ten ominous and risky trends

How to deal with the impact of COVID-19 on consumer behaviour

Source: The Next Organization
Do you still remember the time that you could go outside and that people within 2 meters were not your enemy? The time you could go to your office and celebrate the end of week with more than 3 people on a terrace in the sun? This was the time before the coronavirus outbreak. The virus not only determines what we can do, but also influences how we behave. It seems that the corona virus is likely to create permanent shifts in consumer behaviour which have a huge short- and long-term impact on retailers. Are you prepared for this shift?

Brigadegeneraal Kees de Rijke: 'Dit vergt een compleet nieuwe vorm van leiderschap'

Source: CHRO
De Koninklijke Landmacht doet continu aan risico-inventarisatie; er zijn digitale appèls, militairen loggen thuis in. Oefenen en trainen, is nu moeilijk. 

Als we brigadegeneraal Kees de Rijke spreken, is hij onderweg van de kazerne in Havelte naar ‘thuis’ in Gorinchem. In een VW busje, waar hij op de achterste bank zit. Om die anderhalve meter afstand tot de chauffeur en vice versa in acht te nemen…

Leaders should be humans first, especially in times of crisis

Source: Forbes
Okay, let’s get right down to business—especially now, when so much is going on, there are so many unknowns, and so much is at stake. There’s no time to waste.

This is how a lot of people think, and how they conduct themselves, especially in times of crisis. But are you really wasting time if you show clients and colleagues your human side—show them you care? I don’t think so. In fact, I think the opposite is true— especially now, when everyone’s senses and emotions are heightened.

Is the COVID-19 outbreak a black swan or the new normal?

Source: MIT Sloan Management Review
In the time between writing this and reading it, whatever I say about COVID-19 will likely be out of date. That’s the nature of something moving at exponential speed through society. The scale of what’s happening is hard to grasp, and it’s logical to wonder whether COVID-19 is the so-called

Source: Boston Consulting Group
airline industry has been hit extremely hard by the COVID-19 crisis—even harder, perhaps, than by the events of 9/11 and the 2008 global financial crisis put together. With unprecedented consequences, many airlines have grounded all, or almost all, of the planes in their fleet. Several are now flying passenger aircraft as freighters. Most of the commercial, network, and operations teams are still scrambling to repatriate passengers and decide which flights to keep. Meanwhile, executives are in touch with governments, employee representatives, and suppliers to formulate responses under very dynamic circumstances.
