|The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently changed how companies should think about business strategy. Neither Agree nor Disagree||“While the COVID-19 pandemic has sped up the adoption of certain technologies, such as digital technologies, which have induced firms to rethink certain aspects of their business strategies, including the interaction with their customers and their approach toward data security, other changes are temporary. For instance, those business model changes triggered by a reduction in consumer demand are likely to last until the pandemic ends. The extent to which specific aspects are permanent or not also depends on the type of business. B2C companies are likely to implement more permanent changes than B2B companies. ”|
