MIT CISR Annual Research Forum

The MIT CISR Annual Research Forum, a review of MIT CISR findings and exchange of experiences, is a unique learning opportunity for people from MIT CISR sponsor and patron firms whether working inside or outside the IT unit. Our 2017 forum will take place on November 1 & 2 in Cambridge, MA. Each MIT CISR sponsor and patron organizations is invited to send up to three people to this event.

MIT CISR researchers will share their project findings:

  • How to design your digital organization
  • How top performers compete in dynamic ecosystems
  • How to run on analytics-powered business processes
  • The two components of a winning employee experience
  • The makeup of an innovation portfolio
  • And more!

The two-day learning will include breakout sessions on emerging technology (AI, Blockchain, Internet of Things), and guest speakers from industry-leading firms.

Andrew McAfee, Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy, will deliver the faculty keynote. He is the co- author of Machine|Platform|Crowd and The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies (co-authored with Erik Brynjolfsson).

If you are interested in attending, please contact your organization’s key liaison to MIT CISR for approval to register. If you work at a sponsor or patron firm but don’t know your liaison’s contact information, contact Amber Franey, afraney@mit.edu or 617-324-7546.
