South Africans have proven over an intensely restrictive TWO-month national lockdown that we are a tenacious and determined people. And as we start to plan for a new future based on government’s closely managed risk adjusted strategy, we need every decision in government and business to be made with agility and purpose.
The world has not, since World War II, been faced with such a crisis. However, as the quote implies, COVID-19 provides an opportunity for society, business and government to embrace uncertainty. This global crisis will force us to solve highly complex problems in new and creative ways.
