What Should Be Done Now?

Herman Mulder, a colleague in The Netherlands, has written up his thoughts and recommendations in a piece titled “From Accidental Pain to Systemic Gain” for an action agenda going forward from the pandemic and, more recently, the concern for inequalities which could be remediated.

Herman has much experience in working to improve our decision-making with the Global Reporting Initiative and now with the effort to document impacts, assess them and in the way of the quality movement, achieve continuous improvements in the outcomes of our economic systems.

To me, Herman embodies what I have come to respect in so many Dutch – practical wisdom, personal modesty when blessed with talent and dedication to the common good.

I am very pleased that he has agreed to let us share his suggestions with you.
