Is there a growth opportunity or profitability opportunity to gain market share or grow the business by expanding into some adjacent areas that are particularly enabled by the crisis? Can you think strategically? Are you just so mired in the tactics of recovering normal business operations that you left this opportunity, a bigger strategic opportunity, slip between your fingers?
