MIT CISR Summer Session 2022: Getting to Future Ready

JUNE 13-15, 2022

Future Ready companies outperform their peers on both revenue growth and net profit margin by more than 20%, but getting to Future Ready requires doing things differently. MIT CISR Summer Session 2022 took a three-day deep dive into what it takes to digitally transform an enterprise. Using as a guide the forthcoming book Future Ready: The Four Pathways to Capturing Digital Value by Stephanie Woerner, Peter Weill, and Ina Sebastian, this program  helped attendees determine what Future Ready means for their enterprises, explored the pathways that might be best based on organizational culture, and identified the capabilities need to be built.
