But let's be honest: A crisis is not a good thing, and no amount of talk about it will help. And neither is the historical crisis we are currently experiencing. Nevertheless, crises enable us to examine ourselves and our actions, even if we are forced to do so. Are we using the right strategies, the right technologies? If not, now is the time to innovate, which will ultimately allow us to emerge stronger from the crisis."
