Not only did it drive entire workforces to work from home with immediate effect, but it entailed unexpected childcare duties, furloughed staff and an instant dependency on technology support. Businesses will try and prepare for any eventuality, but when faced with a considerable disruptor, it all comes down to how quickly they can react and adapt.
We can speculate about how businesses have risen to these challenges in this period of uncertainty and change, but we wanted to gather some real-life experiences. So we caught up with a number of Chief Architects who are part of Konvergent’s Roundtable community to see how Covid-19 has impacted their organisations over these past few months.
