With the 737 Max now requiring the full simulator training that Boeing was trying to circumvent in the first place, they might have well avoided all the shortcuts taken which caused them to arrive here in the first place. They will have to repair the reputational damage by committing to their current customers of the 737 Max by spending whatever it takes to assure customers that this is a safe aircraft with multiple redundancies. Fortunately for them, the 737 lineage itself is still an intact brand with a good safety history. I don't see them abandoning ship - they have too many orders to scrap the airplane and it will take 5 years for them to design its successor.
