Paper proposing an organizational model to deal with COVID-19
The Three New Normals (3NN model), published in The Cutter Consortium (Arthur D. Little)
The 3NN model, developed by Prof. Yesha Sivan, provides a mental framework for organizations managing the crisis brought on by the COVID-19 black swan. The model describes A) what (three new normals), B) when (three-time scales), C) how (three methods of coping), and D) for whom (three levels of influence).
The model provides a way to understand, mitigate, and hopefully thrive during COVID-19.
