Past Events

MIT CISR offers a selection of ​research events each year at which our sponsor and patron members can hear and discuss findings from our ongoing research, presented by members of our research team. These events, based in varying locations globally—or virtually—provide opportunities for members to engage directly with the research, the researchers, and each other.

Review Our Recent Past Events:

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.

MIT CISR Annual Research Forum

November 9 & 10, 2021

The MIT CISR Annual Research Forum was held virtually due to ongoing impacts to travel and to events on the MIT campus from the COVID-19 pandemic. But the physical restrictions led to online innovations for this unique learning opportunity for employees from MIT CISR member firms. MIT CISR researchers shared their 2021 project findings over two days, with Day 1 featuring webinars with unlimited attendance for our members. The exclusive sessions on Day 2 encouraged the lively discussions that make our events unique. Throughout the event, live scribing produced colorful visual documentation that is now available to all our members to deepen the learning.
