"The New (Ab)Normal"

MIT Professor Yossi Sheffi

In his new book, "The New (Ab)Normal", MIT Professor Yossi Sheffi maps how the Covid-19 pandemic impacted business, supply chains, and society.  He exposes the critical role supply chains play in helping people, governments, and companies to manage the crisis. The book draws on executive interviews, pandemic media coverage, and historical analyses.

Sheffi also builds on themes from his books "The Resilient Enterprise (2005") and "The Power of Resilience (2015)" to enrich the narrative. The author paints a compelling picture of how the Covid-19 virus is changing many facets of human life, and what our post-pandemic world might look like.

This presentation cites many examples from Dr. Sheffi's must-read book, that will helps companies to redefine their business models, and adjust to a fast-evolving economic landscape.
