The Reboot


26th of October 2021


In The Queens Hall at The Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen, Denmark





REBOOT! COVID-19 instantly changed how we live and work and will change our behavior long after the pandemic has let go of our society. Companies as well as the public sector plunged into implementing digital technologies, new business models and new processes with an unprecedented acceleration. The office moved home – into the living room or the kitchen. Shopping and entertainment went on-line and the large gatherings and events went into standby mode. Hard pressed by the situation, we learned a whole new meaning of change and agility. Of social responsibility. Of self-leadership and virtual leadership. 

The actions we take today to restart the Danish society can create a successful cycle for new growth and accelerate digitalization and green transition. Experience from previous recessions reveals that this is not only possible, but in fact an habitual factor of the effect of recessions. 

In the coming months, all organizations will have to enter a restart phase, but the questions are numerous. What is the best we can learn from the crisis? Should our business model have a service overhaul? Do we need to change our operational capacity, and does the supply chain have sufficient links to respond to future global shocks? What are the strengths and weaknesses of our organization and organizational culture? Or of our leadership values? 

Several new companies and old, established organizations have been forced to reconfigure their product and service, recalibrate their customer database, and completely change their action plans and strategies. 

Successful companies and organizations will be able to restart strongly if they embrace the new normal with the right mindset, strategy and culture in place. The important transition to a successful new normal will depend on leaders being able to see the new opportunities and not least having the courage to reboot and set the new course.
