The fallout from coronavirus has been so powerful that economic cracks are beginning to emerge. Local business owners are beginning to share supply chain problems and a loss of sales. The travel industry is falling apart, and consumer spending has decreased dramatically as Americans pull back from their daily purchases and routines and some economists are beginning to think the U.S. is heading for a recession. And some already believe that a recession has already begun.

This cause for alarm has started led tech leaders into questioning their survival and outlook for the future of their company, but being able to make the right adjustments and decisions in an ever-changing economic environment has now become more critical than ever before. Are you ready for it?

Get expert advice on how to make smart decisions in the midst of an economic downturn.
