By , , and. The trend towards greater global integration has been so dominant over the last few decades that the specter of “decoupling” necessarily inspires fear among business leaders and investors alike. If China leaves the orbit of a U.S.-centric world economy, seeking to build its own ecosystem of alliances, institutions, and norms, the benefits of integration seem at risk. Decoupling also seems inexorable — Donald Trump’s administration has accelerated that trend, not caused it, and a Joe Biden victory in November would likely bring stylistic but not substantive changes. Yet, the risks for firms and economies from decoupling are neither linear or clear. It’s tempting to think that unwinding a system that has delivered growth and profit.

The importance of capital allocation in a crisis. By , , , and. " My biggest learning as the CEO of Ørsted is always to be ready to look at how you are allocating your capital towards industries, where you have long-term growth opportunities, so you don’t end up in industries which are slowly dying.

By and. The Covid-19 crisis has stressed price stability in both directions fueling a debate about the future of price stability. In this summary of our detailed inflation primer (slide deck available ), we lay out the structural and cyclical foundations of price stability, the deflationary and inflationary risks from the coronavirus shock, as well as what it would take for the anchored inflation regime to break. Price stability is a structural phenomenon that requires regular cyclical defenses to safeguard against the two-sided risk of price growth moving too low or too high. Our current regime of price stability — a 30-year stretch of falling, low, and stable price growth that we call the “Volcker inheritance” — is well-anchored and backst.

In 2017 Thinkers50 named him the world’s #1 management thinker.

The value of resilience. By , Saumeet Nanda, and. “The world is simply not prepared to deal with a disease — an especially virulent flu, for example — that infects large numbers of people very quickly. Of all the things that could kill 10 million people or more, by far the most likely is an epidemic. But I believe we can prevent such a catastrophe by building a global warning and response system for epidemics.”- Bill Gates, 2015. It has been known for a long time that pandemics pose a major risk to global health and economies, yet the world was mostly caught flat-footed when the COVID-19 outbreak started spreading. A few countries were well-prepared for the crisis, but many were not, and some even scrapped or defunded preparation plans in rec.

By and Tian Feng. This is the third article in a multipart series. Long before the arrival of COVID-19, cities around the world had started to reinvent themselves through “smart city” initiatives. Beset by growing populations, aging or insufficient infrastructure, and the rising cost and difficulty of meeting the needs of residents, cities were investing in technology to address environmental sustainability, traffic congestion, public transit, and public health, all while facing budgetary pressures. The pandemic has intensified the need for intelligence and insight as cities struggle to assess the effectiveness of response measures and compliance in real time. Meanwhile, increasing reliance on e-commerce and the shift to remote working are s.

By , , , Phillip Cook, and Cheryl Berriman. In our conversations with more than 100 CEOs about leading through the crisis, they emphasized six themes that are consistent with what we found in our long-term study on CEO performance. We heard many stories emphasizing the importance of purpose as a guide to action, a long-term approach to strategy, and the tracking of high-frequency signals. Since the crisis began, most CEOs have spent even more energy taking care of their people, communicating authentically, and honing their own leadership abilities. Purpose Guides Action. Purpose anchors an organization’s day-to-day activities to a higher goal. It is a that underlies what it does, makes, or sells. CEOs have drawn from the well of purpose to ha.

Unlocking collective action in a connected world. By and Roselinde Torres. “You didn’t see me on television, you didn’t see news stories about me. The kind of role that I tried to play was to pick up pieces or put together pieces out of which I hoped organization might come.”Ella Baker, Civil Rights Leader. Ella Baker was famous for eschewing top-down approaches, preferring to work behind the scenes to effect change, building on or combining existing efforts and engaging with a broad set of stakeholders wherever possible. Organizations (civil and commercial alike) frequently struggle against internal and external inertia, complexity and fractiousness to get things done. Civil society often looks to business, with its emphasis on goals, measur.

By , , , , , and. In both cases, we are aware of mechanisms to prevent or at least ease adverse effects. Bill Gates, among others, highlighted back in 2015 the necessary elements of preparedness to avert a global pandemic. And humanity is aware of the need to reduce CO 2 emissions and remove excess CO 2 from the atmosphere. But while governments enforce emergency measures around the globe in response to the pandemic, little action on climate has been taken. Therefore, the question is not “What can we do?” but “Why not now?”Some problems that we encounter in business and society can be thought of as simple-they have an obvious root cause and can be solved with a readily available intervention. But others are complex, arising from the combina.

By ,. In normal times, the public debt does not feature much in conversations with investors and business leaders, who tend to view it as a detail of the macroeconomic context. But coronavirus has made the macro context critical to companies’ outlook, and public debt — which has jumped near record levels in many economies including the U.S. — attracts much concern. This is understandable, since sovereign debt problems could create a more toxic business environment than even a deep recession. Has debt risen too far too fast, and should we worry about it? While public debt is discussed widely in the current context, it is also widely misunderstood. It’s tempting to think that more is worse, that higher levels go with greater risks, that a rece.

By , , , , and. Companies face a Herculean challenge in today’s fast-evolving work environment. Such is the pace of change that businesses are disappearing more quickly than ever before. If they are to survive, never mind thrive, company leaders must learn to adapt. And here, the operative word is learn . Much has been said about companies’ capacity to adapt. Much less has been said about companies’ capacity to learn. And yet, in our estimation, a company’s capacity to learn determines its capacity to adapt and, ultimately, its chances of surviving far into the future. If your company isn’t learning, it isn’t growing — and it’s probably on a losing path. Of course, most companies have a learning and development function within their Human Re.
