A trend I can see coming is a tendency of authors to blend post-Covid recovery priorities with other agendas. At least, that's the sense I get after reading this summary of a McKinsey report (159 page PDF) from last September. For example, how does "speeding up decision making, deploying nimble teams, redeploying talent, and empowering tomorrow’s leaders" fit into a recovery strategy? It's just your standard manic CEO-speak. Or "look at technology investments and reset them for value and speed." Same again. Now some of the suggestions make sense, such as 'the recovery will be digital'  and rethinking supply chains. But most of them are just babble, and would have been the same with or without Covid.
