MIT CISR Research Poll on the Digital Workplace: Objectives and Initiatives
At MIT CISR, we believe that the Digital Workplace is a fundamentally different way of working designed to deliver the capabilities that contribute to building value in the digital era. Organizations are exploring this in different ways, with varying expectations around how workplace changes can help in producing value. (The MIT CISR August 2015 research briefing— “The Digital Workplace Transforming Business: The Case of Deloitte Australia”—describes one organization’s approach.) The results of this poll will feed into a larger research project.

Enterprise Transformations in the Digital Economy (T-LAB)

A benefit of MIT CISR sponsorship is the opportunity to propose and possibly be involved in Sloan MBA student project work, facilitated by faculty mentors, as part of Action Learning at MIT Sloan. Action Learning is a pedagogical approach that emphasizes student engagement in projects designed to have measurable business impact. A growing portfolio of fifteen Labs offer hands-on opportunities to put theory into practice. Students are from MBA, Sloan Fellow, Leaders for Management/Leaders for Global Operations (LFM/LGO), M.S., and Management Studies (MSMS) programs.

Students who participate in T-LAB are seeking:
• Challenging “real-world” projects with measurable impact
• Access to passionate sponsors
• A well-scoped deliverable
• Connection to the “big picture”

Sponsor companies that are interested in hosting a project must complete a proposal by January 6, 2016 and be available for the pitch night in February.

For more information about this opportunity, see details within our website or as a presentation, or contact MIT CISR Executive Director Leslie Owens.
