Finding Serendipity During The Coronavirus Pandemic

Event: DRI Case Study/Position Paper

Author: Chloe Demrovsky

Summer is drawing to a close, schools are reopening (maybe), and the pandemic feels like it’s going to slog on forever. The future is wildly uncertain and yet the days drag on predictably. How can we create moments of serendipity to break up the monotony? To find out, I spoke with Dr. Christian Busch, Director of the CGA Global Economy Program at New York University and author of The Serendipity Mindset about how we can pursue moments of serendipity or “smart luck”. I hope that his words bring you some optimism and inspiration.

Is Your Business Ready for a Pandemic from the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

Event: Annual Conference - DRI2020

Author: Dr. Lisa M. Koonin

A pandemic occurs when there is the emergence of a new virus that spreads rapidly between people all over the world, causing illness and death. Pandemics can have a significant impact on businesses, producing high levels of worker absenteeism and disruption of business functions. Although the emerging outbreak of the novel corona virus has not yet been declared as a pandemic as of February 2020, cases are mounting and disruptive global impact on supply chains is increasing. Currently few businesses have incorporated specific plans for a pandemic in their business continuity plans, leaving them vulnerable when a pandemic strikes. This highly interactive workshop will be conducted using a “table-top” exercise format. Information will be provided about pandemics and their potential impacts on businesses. Practical steps that businesses can take to protect their business, workforce, and customers will be discussed, and participants will have the opportunity to discuss these strategies in an interactive tabletop exercise. By the end of the session, participants will have essential information to begin to incorporate pandemic planning in their business continuity plans.

Why The Business Impact Of The Coronavirus Will Linger—And What To Do About It – Chloe Demrovsky for Forbes

Event: DRI Case Study/Position Paper

Author: Chloe Demrovsky

“Why are markets so spooked? The economic concerns are not so much about the virus itself. They are about the prolonged impact of supply shortages paired with wavering consumer confidence and reduced spending due to response measures. With case numbers growing in Italy, supply chain fears increase. The spread of Covid-19 and attempts to contain it are now affecting European industrial hubs as well manufacturing in China, South Korea and Japan, which could cause prolonged shortages across a variety of sectors. As for the U.S., it’s a matter of when, not if. Are we prepared?” DRI President and CEO Chloe Demrovsky addresses the resilience community and its pandemic preparedness status for Forbes.
