Gates, Cars, Digital, Culture and Coffee: The Week’s Most Interesting (25/04/2020)

It’s been a week of uncertainty. Across the world, we seem unsure on how to spend the next few weeks fighting COVID. Most of the money, sanctioned for unemployment in America has already been used up, Kurzabeit (similar to furlough but more direct) is showing limited impact on German businesses. The global economy has hit rock bottom.

This week I choose articles of optimism from Bill Gates, the challenge facing one of the world’s largest global industries, one article on digital strategy, which has become more important in today’s times . I end with two articles on strategy and innovation, one of adaptability and the other of innovation. Have fun reading !
