Adaptation. Like everyone, I have been living in a perpetual state of adaptation since the start of the pandemic. With each corner turned, a new truth and response. The Zoom phenomenon for one. A vaccine the next. Each representing the positive role of innovation, science and capitalism in our lives. Disruption. Simultaneously, disruption abounds. On one hand, Zoom connects us. Meanwhile, an economic and social fabric stretched, if not torn. Large corporations and their platforms adapt and profit, as local shops and businesses struggle to survive.
What emerges next will bring us to places yet unknown. New forms of leadership, enterprise design – and capitalism itself – are unfolding to help bring us to this new place.
