"In a crisis like that of COVID-19 when the stakes are high and scrutiny is intense, the board has a unique role. Stepping in may be uncomfortable, but stepping aside is not an option….Leadership in a crisis like that of COVID-19 is not the same as in business as usual: demands on management have become exponentially greater and it has become harder for leaders to execute their role. Usual ways of working must be adapted, process simplified, authority delegated. Directors should resist the urge to jump in and blur the lines between those of management and the board. (Delloitte, 2020)."
