News: Limestone’s COVID-19 Service Offerings

During these unprecedented times, everything feels uncertain. New information emerges daily as countries and regions report on virus transmission rates, quarantine adherence, and projections of economic shock that range from uneven to potentially catastrophic.  Leaders and managers must interpret this vast amount of incoming data, quickly design a response, and hope for the best.  Nobody knows when or how the pandemic will end, how much a sustained response will cost, or whether current strategies and plans are truly the optimal solution.

Limestone Analytics can help.  We have cross-sectoral depth in quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and can bring our expertise to bear on the challenges your organizations is currently facing.  Through research, modelling, scenario-building and other advanced approaches, we can provide unique insight into how this crisis is unfolding where you are, and how to evaluate policy and organizational responses.

Our analytical and modelling expertise allows our team to dive deep into existing data, shedding light on how COVID-19 is affecting specific industries, sectors and regions, and which targeted policies might be the most effective to ensure economic resilience and growth.  Our scenario work is designed to spark strategic insights and critical conversations about the future, with the goal of both informing and inspiring leaders to make better decisions now.

Limestone’s team is made up of economists, strategists, and evaluators; we are deep thinkers and creative minds.  We can help you not only analyze and learn from existing data, but we will also make sure you are asking the right questions.  Our work will bring to light trends that may not be obvious, and will bring to life the numbers in the databases.  We offer better evidence about the risks you are facing and the potential impact of your decision choices.

Our COVID-19 suite of services for governments, companies and organizations includes the following:

  • Scenario Planning: Based on hard data combined with in-depth interviews, the scenario planning process gives organizations a range of narratives about possible futures – in other words, plausible visions that highlight uncertainties and possibilities that lie ahead.  Scenarios are not predictions.  Instead, they are a planning tool that can allow leaders to design a robust strategy that will be effective no matter what happens in the future.
  • Economic Risk Assessments: By analyzing data on population and industries, our team can help governments understand specific vulnerabilities to the economic effects of COVID-19, and how to chart a course for recovery once the pandemic ends.
  • COVID-19 Economic Projections:  Limestone is already engaged in modelling the economic impact of the pandemic and economic shutdown on economies and employment, both at the national and regional levels.  These models help governments identify their most-vulnerable populations, target pain points in the job market, and plan for recovery.

If your organization is looking for the kinds of insights and inspiration that can result from scenario planning, economic risk assessments or COVID-19 projections, please Contact Limestone Analytics. We look forward to working with you.
