Will the coronavirus lead to economic decoupling and deglobalization?

Fears about deglobalization and economic decoupling are not new but have grown in the wake of the coronavirus/COVID-19. While the crisis is still ongoing, there seems to be a debate between two schools of thought.

The first believes that once the crisis is over, authorities will need to do all what they can in order to help economic actors get back on their feet as the world opens back up.

The second believes that “business as usual” won’t be an option and that the business environment as well as companies will need to undergo deep transformations. In this session, we will discuss the consequences of the coronavirus. Is this the most recent illustration of the risk of economic decoupling? Will it affect the business environment in a profound way, or only in the short term? We will also identify some of the lessons learned and what the outbreak means for the global environment going forward.

Prise de decision & biais cognitif - l'exemple du COVID-19

Face à la montée de l'épidémie de Covid-19, la réaction des populations, comme celles des pouvoirs publics dans les différents pays, a soulevé et soulève encore de nombreuses questions. L'un des prismes qui permet de comprendre l'apparente irrationalité des analyses et des décisions est celui des sciences cognitives.

Dans cette session interactive d'une heure, Olivier Sibony présentera un certain nombre de biais cognitifs qui ont affecté la compréhension initiale de la situation et qui en affectent encore la gestion. La discussion visera à mettre en évidence les leçons que peuvent en tirer les décideurs dans leur pratique.

Olivier Sibony enseigne la stratégie, la prise de décision et la résolution de problèmes à HEC Paris. Auparavant, il a passé 25 ans chez McKinsey & Co., où il était Senior Partner. Diplômé d'HEC Paris et docteur en sciences de gestion, il est l'auteur de nombreux articles scientifiques et de trois livres. Son dernier ouvrage est Vous allez redécouvrir le management (Flammarion, avril 2020).

Comment l'art nous éclaire-t-il en temps de crise ?

Relativiser la crise non pour en nier l’importance mais pour échapper à la sidération qui la renforce. Prendre le chemin de quelques images d’autres crises, celles dont Bosch et Breughel ont témoigné, pour nommer et en nommant, regagner du pouvoir sur l’innommable qui terrorise et humilie.

Réel devenu confus et illisible, destructions des échelles et des valeurs, dévaluation de la présence et du geste …

Et Breughel, parce qu’il a le courage de reprendre à son compte la radicalité interrogatrice de Bosch, peut apparaitre légitime quand il esquisse gestes et présences susceptibles de faire reconnaître, au travers du masque grimaçant de la crise, le visage de l’opportunité

It’s time to reinvent your business model

The Coronavirus crisis is a shock, a shock for us as individuals, as employees, as leaders. We would like it to be over, but we must get prepared. This is not a parenthesis; occasional lockdowns will be the new normal. This is just a rehearsal of the world ahead.

The (temporary) end of the lockdown will not mean we will be back to normal. Business as usual has gone as we, as individuals, and our companies will have suffered and thus have changed during this crisis. So perhaps this is the right time to rethink, to reinvent our business. Back to normal is not an option, we need to invent tomorrow’s company. By amplifying the already disruptive digital revolution, this crisis will force companies to rethink the way they work, the way they are organized, and for the leaders, the way they will lead and thrive in the times ahead.


This webinar will set the stage of what is ahead: what will the new normal look like? What will the company of tomorrow look like? Laurence Lehmann-Ortega, strategy professor at HEC will suggest that the company of tomorrow will need to rethink its frontiers and be more responsible, innovative and inspiring.

Agility vs resilience in supply chains

Most companies have underestimated so far the value, which can be provided by supply chain management. The best-in-class have designed supply chain management models to develop their agility, which has generated a valuable competitive advantage and a higher customer satisfaction level. Only few of them have completed this value roadmap by reinforcing the resilience of their supply chains in order to face uncertain but probable major risks. This webinar will provide a clarification of the key questions to address and the potential solutions to develop both agility and resilience in supply chains.

Global and European response to COVID19: What’s Next?

Based on current state of research and policy developments, Alberto Alemanno – Jean Monnet Professor of EU Law & Risk Regulation – will offer a learning journey through the global and European response to COVID-19 and sketch the scenarios ahead.

Creating Intelligence In The Face Of Uncertainty

The current situation prompts decision-makers to take most of their decisions in the face of increasing uncertainty. Most managers will react by asking for more facts, more precise data, hoping that more information will enable them to take the “winning” decision.

Unfortunately, gathering precise data is different from creating actual intelligence. First of all, numerical precision can induce a false sense of certainty, which is inherently dangerous in an uncertain world. Secondly, data itself can be interpreted in different ways, and open the road to potential biases.

La finance d’entreprise à l’heure du covid-19 : solvabilité, solvabilité (et liquidité)

Si l’action des Pouvoirs Publics a été remarquable de rapidité pour prévenir des problèmes de liquidité des entreprises, va se poser pour celles d’entre elles dont l’activité a été fortement ralentie ou arrêtée des problèmes de solvabilité, et donc des besoins en capitaux propres auxquels les États et les banques centrales ne sont pas les mieux placés pour y remédier, eux-mêmes pouvant avoir leurs propres préoccupations en ce domaine.

Webinar: Manager dans la tempête

Faire face à l’urgence, assurer la continuité de l’exploitation, maintenir la motivation, surmonter les peurs, prendre les bonnes décisions : ce webinaire cherche à la fois à dédramatiser la situation du dirigeant confronté aux difficultés de l’entreprise tout en lui donnant les principaux moyens de les affronter et de renforcer la résilience de son organisation.

C’est une intervention transversale, de leadership, de management, et de droit, très orientée vers la pratique.

Si la compréhension de la situation particulière du dirigeant face aux difficultés, sur le plan psychologique et social, et les défis que posent le management de crise (rassurer, convaincre, décider…) sont ainsi au cœur de ce webinar, le dispositif judiciaire de prévention et de traitement des difficultés des entreprises, les modes d’action des professions concernées par ces difficultés, avocats, administrateurs judiciaires, mandataires, experts… y sont également abordés.
