We were very proactive to have had identified various scenarios and simulations for similar crises in 2018.

Therefore, we needed to adjust very quickly. The research we were conducting, the trends we were monitoring, and the agile strategies we have had have contributed to achieving our goals and objectives. One of the first projects we were working on was a green award. The challenge lay in getting the buy-in of the stakeholders, especially that knowledge was limited at that time.
