When global megatrends run amok
“Businesses now have a vested interest in helping to shape the environment. I mean environment in the larger sense of the word — not the physical environment, but the legal, political, economic, regulatory environment in which they operate.” Richard Haass, President, Council on Foreign Relations  
Growth in the new normal
As challenging as the current economic headwinds may be, many of these forces are likely short-term idiosyncrasies of the post-COVID-19 economic recovery. We believe that several longer-term and even accelerating economic mega-trends will undoubtedly have a profound impact on the global economy in the next five years and must be addressed with immediate and serious executive attention. In this Viewpoint, we cover four global growth mega-trends: 
BYE-BYE COMFORT ZONE, WELCOME VUCA
NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME TO PUT GROWTH ON AGENDA As the global vaccination campaign continues, companies are preparing for the post-COVID-19 economic rebound to rebuild their financial strength and recover ground that they have lost during the COVID recession. Simultaneously, they must also respond to drivers and trends that the pandemic has either induced or significantly accelerated. They must balance the demand surge and digitalization tailwind against supply shortages.
Electric buses
Electric buses are expected to be more efficient and greener than diesel buses, and key to making cities more environmentally friendly. Every city must carefully choose its individual solution for its bus fleet, and OEMs have to be ready to mirror the local requirements by understanding the needs of both PTOs and PTAs.
Dematerialized ticketing
Transport authorities and mass transit operators should consider dematerialization of ticketing for increased resilience and to pave the way for Mobility-as-a-Service in a post-Covid world
