Milwaukee, WI. September 2020 – Patina Solutions is pleased to share the results of a survey of 1,900 independent business consultants from around the world, offering insights from corporations and businesses dealing with the challenges of today’s pandemic.

“Partnering with today’s most in-demand interim executives and independent consultants, we have a window into an impressive range of industries,” explains Mike Harris, CEO and Co-Founder of Patina. “They’ve shared how they see companies are mastering management challenges resulting from the pandemic. These experienced managers have highly-relevant observations and recommendations based on their day-in and day-out experiences with top organizations around the world.”

Here are some excerpts from the analysis.

  • Strategic realignment, cash management and restructuring are among the top business challenges in the face of the pandemic
  • 80% of the interim executives and managers surveyed expect to see the use of external experts increase or remain the same
  • Many planned projects were initially put on hold as a result of the pandemic, but for the majority of companies, projects have been merely postponed, not cancelled

The survey was completed in partnership with Globalise. Patina is a founder of the international Globalise network.
