Monthly Highlights, November 2021
As the goal of herd immunity becomes less and less attainable, COVID-19 is likely no longer a disease with a clear end point—it’s one we’ll have to learn to live with. But as society adapts to this new normal, and as the economy starts to emerge from the crisis, leaders must look beyond safeguarding lives and livelihoods and toward a more profound challenge: bettering them. This month, our featured stories explore how corporate, government, and society leaders can achieve growth that’s sustainable and inclusive and growing, as well as how stakeholders need to evolve to manage COVID-19 as an endemic disease. Other highlights in this month’s issue include the following topics:
  • building a winning strategy in an era of digital disruption
  • the evolving roles of financial leaders
  • the organizational case for instilling and investing in apprenticeship
