COVID-19 is considered as an unprecedented crisis having a huge impact on businesses, where “all sectors were
affected but not all would die”.

In this context, the INSEAD Alumni Association France created a task force of 14 INSEAD Alumni volunteers to reflect on the business perspectives for the post-Covid “next normal” period. To that end, a survey was sent to France-based Alumni and has been prolonged by a series of webinars entitled “INSEAD Essentials”, October 2020-January 2021 and by this report which is now available to you.
