This is an opinion piece written in Cologne, Germany, during the initial months of the COVID-19 outbreak. Information at this stage is preliminary and fast-moving. The objective here is to provide a personal view of the likely impact of the phenomenon. I have based my opinion on various communications from management consulting groups, non-governmental organizations, investment banks, learning and development professionals, education specialists and training outfits. The views expressed here are my own and are in no way intended to reflect the views of my employer.
