The world currently is in the disposition to rebound and rebuild itself. Humanity witnessed a pandemic of an apocalyptic proportion that was unprecedented and inconceivable by any standards. The impasse exposed the fragility and vulnerability of our systems. The message was clear and loud: to build strong and resilient systems that can endure tribulations. Organizations and governance mechanisms should be robust to survive catastrophes of comparable magnitude, and still thrive. Subsequently, policy makers, economists, academicians, and other think tanks had to revamp their perspectives. Undoubtedly, technology has emerged as a potent weapon, however, we need to contemplate on forging resilient organization systems and enduring economies.


What should be the stratagem for the future? 

The world witnessed the impact of the pandemic across various sectors such as businesses, education, healthcare, governance etc. Establishments, however large and professionally managed, had to learn new lessons to be agile in adapting the new normal. Companies, big and small, had to innovate and adapt to match the mercurial events. It is by now apparent to all stakeholders that anticipation, innovation, adaptation and resilience are the ‘mantras’ for sustainability. As the adage reads, ‘when the going gets tough, the tough gets going.’ Only those who have seasoned from man-made and natural calamities can perdure. Organizations should improve the quality and pace of decision making by employing technology and data for the process. Moreover, they should look for innovative solutions to accelerate the scope and scale of their business. Furthermore, they should reassess their priorities and focus on building businesses that contribute to a sustainable world. To conclude, how can we build organizations that will endure predicaments both, natural as well as man-made? This conference is aimed at contemplating and reflecting on future course of action in this context.
