With today’s California lock down order of all citizens, the fifth largest economy in the world has nearly ground to a halt. Things will change.
We are entering a time when businesspeople’s expectations will be lower; people will be more accepting of glitches.
Today, web meeting systems are overloaded, phone lines busy or meetings unable to connect. Anger, no. Understanding and acceptance, yes. Your colleague missed a (web) meeting. Anger, no. Just happy to know they got tied up and are still a healthy contributor, yes. Things will change.
We are also eerily lowering our thresholds for the highest levels of security in exchange for more productivity. Today, it must be “secure enough” but also easy enough to use now. Things will change.

We are entering a time when all businesses may opt for lower cost, perhaps lesser known alternatives, as the future of one’s business opportunities may drastically change. Cost savings are going to be important for the foreseeable future.
