Tooling Up For The Post-Pandemic Era
Disruptions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic have been broad and substantial, but the responses to those challenges have also been promising.

In many ways, the improvised work-from-home response put in place by many organizations has turned out remarkably well. Productivity has been high. Complaints have been minimal. Supervision issues have largely been managed. And commuter traffic has become a thing of the past. But what may be most remarkable is that essentially all of it is being accomplished using existing technology.
