NOTE: The Management and Strategy Institute will continue to update this section with information regarding the impact of the Coronavirus on the process improvement industry as more information becomes available:
The Management and Strategy Institute has been in close communications with industry leaders regarding the impact of the Coronavirus. While we believe this virus will be a short-lived ordeal, economic indications point to a slowdown of some sectors for the next two quarters. This impact was worsened when President Trump announced plans to suspend travel from some regions of Europe to the U.S. for the next 30 days.
While any economic downturn is worrying, several indicators actually prove to be good news for process improvement professionals.
Now is a good time to assess your resume and look to fill any gaps that may exist. This includes experience, education, and even your professional and personal affiliations. MSI will continue to monitor the situation and report any findings to our members as they become available.
