For the biggest impact, companies should focus on using AI, digitizing must-have capabilities, and adopting new ways of working.
Multinationals have a tendency to default to their usual practices, like building large, future-proofed plants. It's time for them to rethink their business model in emerging markets.
In order to emerge stronger, companies must ensure that their response to COVID-19 is not just immediate but also transformational.
To survive the crisis, brands need to shore up their supply chain, adjust to shifting sales channels, and reset their promotional calendars.
Digital is still anyone’s game. Organizations that think big, take a holistic view, and move nimbly will find competitive advantage.
Market conditions are favorable for M&A. Expect a lot of deals, and expect most to destroy value—until companies learn how to turn the tide and create value.

Despite the declining advantages of scale, global giants can compete against their smaller, nimbler rivals. But they need a new playbook.
Contrary to popular belief, consumers are not enigmatic. Asking the right questions can help you pinpoint the real drivers of consumer choice.
