Abstract

Whether leadership and management should be distinguished in organizational contexts has long been a topic of academic debate. In a context where it is clear that the Covid-19 pandemic will also have a lasting impact on the international economic environment, it seems particularly important to assess the importance and applicability of the distinction between the two. This paper will critically evaluate the necessity of this distinction between the two concepts and discuss how this distinction applicable to the Covid-19 pandemic, with a view to providing more focused recommendations and guidance for corporations (especially MNEs) in managing in the context of the pandemic.
