New Normal: A Shock to the System with Saku Mantere

Protected: Home

Hosted by Dave Kaufman, featuring Professor Saku Mantere from the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University


In episode 6 of The “New Normal” podcast series, Professor Saku Mantere from The Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University, and Editor-in-Chief of Delve, discusses how organizations have responded and adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic: whether universities, governments, or businesses, many responded to the crisis by adapting quickly and performing beyond expectations. Why are some organizations at their best when facing a problem, while others flag? Professor Mantere also addresses the effects of Zoom – and the lack of physical classrooms and workspaces – on organizations, innovation processes, and the future of work in an even more rapidly changing world.

The “New Normal” is a collaboration between journalist Dave Kaufman and Delve, the official thought leadership platform of McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management. Each episode looks in-depth at a different aspect of the new normal that we are all navigating due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Subscribe to the Delve podcast on all major podcast platforms.
