2020 will be remembered as the Long Layover.  What was once expected to be a short disruption has turned into long term disruption that may last well into 2021.

Many of us have been watching more tv, streaming more media and binge watching shows during this pause in our social lives.  Michelle Galvani explores how the media landscape is set for a major disruption that will change what you will see or can see.  And for those who need a break from vacation in front of the computer screen and the tv, Kristin Hoogheem shares the benefit of a workcation.

As the use and value of technology in healthcare continues to rise, the number of interconnected devices grows as well. Data and Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) shared across these interconnected devices create more opportunities for bad actors to attack.

As the college graduate hiring rate declines to the highest number in decades, colleges are in the midst of an existential crisis.

2020 will be remembered as a tipping point for technology acceleration. Automation is projected to erase 85 million jobs globally in medium and large businesses across 15 industries and 26 economies by 2025. While many are quick to point out that news jobs will be created, they are not being created at a rate that is as quick as jobs are being eliminated.

Skills - like being nimble, agile, faster decision making - learned during the pandemic must not be forgotten. Applying the leadership lessons learned during 2020 will help leaders flourish in 2021 regardless of the circumstances!

Businesses that are recovering from the pandemic and looking to achieve differentiation in 2021 must consider the unconventionally changing people, processes, products, and technology trends in their strategies. -Rashmi Verma
