Elon Musk predicts the future at Here are my “less flamboyant” predictions about the many immediate challenges in 2021 for American business. It’s a post-COVID new longer “business as usual”.

Three challenges must be addressed, or we (you) will lose market share and say “good-bye” to new opportunities.

Quality: We must develop new metrics to measure the quality of work performed by individuals separated from mentors, team members and managers. Every CEO should be asking for this and every customer should expect a solid answer for new methods of quality control.

Productivity: Will our economy grow working remotely from the collaboration and innovation required by day to day customer interaction? How can we measure true productivity amongst our worldwide competition in this environment? We need answers fast.

ZOOM meetings will not replace personal interaction. New management books will be written. Is the next Jim Collins out there?
