We often talk about helping our clients innovate in the face of unprecedented change. But today it feels like the words “unprecedented change” have taken on a new level of seriousness. For the last few weeks, organizations have been contending with both a never-before-seen pandemic and a daunting global economic downturn. The resulting changes to our work and personal lives have been radical and rapid, and have only compounded the stress we are all experiencing.

In the midst of the daily, hourly and even minute-by-minute pressures affecting us and the companies where we work, it may feel safest to wait for things to settle. But instead, this is the moment for corporate innovators to lead. We can bring different ways of thinking to the table to help transform how our companies think and do business, find new ways to support our co-workers and bring stability to an organization in the midst of the chaos.

Connecting with your leadership and finding opportunities to deliver answers, insights, quick experiments and results will help your team and your organization as we navigate these uncharted waters.

Here are some ideas for where to start.
