Restarting America: Charting a path to recovery by company and sector

An "alphabet soup" of recovery patterns are emerging, influenced by many factors, including the speed at which demand will recover and the degree of change to an industry’s underlying economics. With so much uncertainty, it can be difficult to predict the right moves.

In this interactive webcast discussion, we shared a framework to help you evaluate how your company and industry will emerge from COVID-19—and strategies to help you eventually thrive. We brought these ideas to life with a deeper dive into two representative industries that touch us all, Consumer & Retail and Industrial Manufacturing.
