Given the state of the world, it might feel pointless to try to forecast the future past a few weeks or months. But there are things you can do today that will make your organization stronger tomorrow.  As people rebuild in the aftermath of the pandemic, leaders who take this opportunity to revisit and redesign their purpose, culture and norms will pull ahead of their rivals. In the fall issue of Rotman Management, we share some of the insights, concepts and tools required to future-proof your organization.
