Covid-19 revealed the make-or-break nature of coordinated logistics and communications.”

POST 258. June 26, 2022. CORONAVIRUS. “For a long time, whenever companies wanted to hire a CEO or another key executive, they knew what to look for: somebody with technical expertise, superior administrative skills, and a track record of successfully managing financial resources.”..” That practice now feels like ancient history. So much has changed during the past two decades that companies can no longer assume that leaders with traditional managerial pedigrees will succeed in the C-suite..”

James Veney & Arnold Kaluzny, my doctoral advisors at the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health, pioneer researchers on innovation and evaluation in health care (Google Veney & Kalunzy).

Offline, even in blue states, people are back to parties, bars and restaurants — and will soon be flying around the world with no testing requirements to return to the US. Things feel as if they’ve lost any coherence. There’s no discernible strategy or guidance on what Covid precautions we should still be taking.”

“Luciana Borio, a former director of medical and biodefense preparedness at the National Security Council, said the country should recall a lesson from the testing fiasco at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and bring commercial diagnostic testing companies into the response.” for links to POSTS 1-256 in chronological order highlight and click on http://doctordidyouwashyourhands.com/2022/06/coronavirus-tracking-links-to-posts-1-256/
