The New Year has ushered in a further wave of COVID-related restrictions, putting the brakes on businesses across Europe accelerating out of the pandemic in 2021. Vaccination rollouts bring confidence that the world will eventually move to a more positive phase of recovery, however, the fog is unlikely to lift fully until 2022. 

So how can companies find the confidence to shift gears from a heavy focus on immediate survival to prioritizing value creation?

In this report we analyze:

  • Why corporate action plans should be driven by industry impact levels
  • How scenario-based planning can provide greater clarity and stability
  • Implications for restructuring activity in 2021
"None of us know exactly how the recovery will manifest itself, but we strongly believe that within industries negatively impacted by COVID-19 the winners will be brave enough to recognize the lasting impacts, and plan and execute their transformations before the competition."
