COVID-19 innovation and collaborative intelligence

The COVID-19 crisis is forcing many companies to rethink their business and relationship with their employees, their network of external collaborators, or consumers. The strength of their connections with these collectives and their capacity for innovation with new solutions are fundamental pieces for the reactivation of the economy, and indeed for the survival of many organizations.

innovation community against covid
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the business model and operations of many organizations. Innovation is now more necessary than ever, to anticipate changes and increase resilience in the face of an uncertain reality. This is also an opportunity, at a time when physical and social connections are reduced, to strengthen the relationship with a corporation’s employees and other stakeholders, among which are consumers. By acting as a community, co-creating a new normal that can be adapted to the different stages of the fight against the pandemic, organizations can approach all areas of this complex crisis more swiftly and efficiently: adapting their business to each phase of the pandemic’s evolution, finding ideas and solutions for economic reactivation, and meanwhile reinforcing their contact with consumers and regulating their new environments and employment needs, looking after the health and productive capacity of their employees.
