Key Strategies for the Biden Transition
As the formal US presidential transition begins, BCG’s Sharon Marcil, who has advised three previous US transitions, talks with Business Insider about how to execute a transition successfully amid a pandemic. She says that the most important task is to get everyone on the same page and to mobilize around a clear set of priorities that allow the new administration to effectively drive the president-elect’s agenda. Marcil emphasizes, however, that this can be achieved only with strong communication. “Let's get smart on the issues, set your priorities, move through your plans, and get that alignment quickly so you can allow for some autonomy,” she says.
