Despite Enormous Disruption, Your Preexisting Business Transformation Issues Have Not Gone Away

Disruption series

In late February and early March, just as the global wave of the pandemic was hitting the United States, we interviewed business leaders about what they were striving for in the coming year and the struggles they sought to overcome on the way toward achieving these goals. We talked with CEOs and Chief Marketing Officers, line-of-business and growth leaders.

The result was a series of short reflections on the current state of brands and marketing in this time of massive change. Every company is trying to reimagine what’s possible for their brand, employees, and customers while pulling the weight of organizational — and personal — struggles. Things are changing, but as brands move forward, the core principles that make brands strong remain the guiding light.
