The rapid spread of COVID-19 across the globe has impacted all spheres of life: personal, professional and societal. While nothing surpasses the tragedy of loss of human lives and livelihoods, the pandemic has also brought global economy to a standstill. Businesses are grappling with this unprecedented crisis and trying to adapt themselves as the situation continues to evolve.
Against this backdrop, the writing on the wall is clear: “COVID 19 isn’t just a pause button. It mandates us to stop, reflect, reset and restart at slower pace” It is now more important than ever to remain optimistic and believe that like with every other crisis, we will overcome this and emerge stronger and more resilient.
The strength of NASSCOM ER&D community lies in its ability to come together collaboratively, deliberate on common challenges and share fresh ideas on how we can find new opportunities in the face of adversities. As enterprises adapt themselves to the new market realities, it is imperative for Indian ER&D players to also reflect on how they can re-imagine their role, identify new opportunity areas, refine their value proposition and build necessary capabilities to position themselves as partners of strategic value in the long run.
It is in this spirit, that we hosted an e-Confluence: Navigating COVID-19 Crisis and Emerging Stronger, in April’ 2020 where a range of industry experts and consultants gathered to guide industry leaders and business heads to discuss critical business issues, emerging business priorities and practical response measures to help your organization navigate this crisis.
Attached are some key takeaways from all three days that we have captured from the e-confluence sessions.
We look forward to staying connected with you. We are all in this together – Stay Indoors, Stay Safe!
