Author(s): Vered Holzmann

In the last few months all of us have experienced major changes due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Probably, at least on some levels, those changes will remain with us and will have an impact on the ways organizations are working, and managers and employees are behaving. The Journal of Organizational Culture, Communications and Conflict are open for papers that will shed light on organizational and managerial implications. First, there is the question of risk management. How should organizations deal with risk management and be prepared for similar situations that may happen in the future. As we have learned from the latest experience, organizations need to ensure business continuity in a dynamic environment, which involves ongoing trusted communication both within the organization and with external partners. We can learn from managers that adopted flexible and agile approaches how to adjust the organizational communication systems to provide sustainable supporting infrastructures and keep high level of motivation among team members and employees. It will also be interesting to investigate how collaborations with customers, suppliers, subcontractors, and strategic partners are maintained in times of dramatic changes.
