The COVID-19 crisis has kick-started a need for rapid public sector innovation: a global flurry to find solutions for an unexpected crisis. Few governments has been fully prepared to deal with a crisis of this nature, and many are working hard to rally resources and unify experts from across the public, private and non-profit sectors toward a common goal.
