Navigating the impact of COVID-19 on analytics models

Presenters: Roger Burkhardt and Jessica Lamb | Time: 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. ET

The problem with that is the dramatic changes created by the pandemic are not reflected in the data feeding into some algorithmic models built before the crisis, therefore reducing their predictive powers and minimizing their usefulness. Can these models be fixed? And how can organizations prepare for the next model-shaking shift? Join partners Roger Burkhardt and Jessica Lamb for a McKinsey Live session to find out.
