What we have learned from COVID-19

The recent months of the pandemic have caused crises and also opportunities. Many businesses and organisations have taken the opportunity to reflect and grow or change, while others are observing how the world is transforming around them.

Analysis of these different positions will allow us to take a step forward in our development as companies and society. So UPF Barcelona School of Management, in collaboration with Institute of Next and Hunivers People Hub, after hearing the views of several dozen managers from major companies, has summarised the most inspiring aspects in 12 graphic one-pages.

This series called What have we learned from the Covid-19 crisis? will include learnings, new objectives to work on, strategies to implement; and also suggestions for publications, talks and reflections that can inspire the business world at such an exceptionally important time as this.
