These events manifest in various forms – political, economic, socio-cultural, pandemic, wars, natural disasters in diverse places, etc. Managing an enterprise in times like these has undoubtedly become a herculean task across all fields of human endeavour as every organisation is struggling to survive. Therefore, to achieve more and succeed, everyone must team up as it is said, “Together Everyone Achieves More”. This is a time for synergistic efforts and total reliance on God for direction.
