MIT CISR Summer Session 2023: Capturing Value for Digital Success

12–14 June 2023 | MIT Sloan Campus

In the digital era, how firms create and capture value has changed profoundly. But most firms aren’t keeping up. Our research shows that the average firm today is leaving an eye-opening 50% of potential digital value or more on the table, compared to the best. MIT CISR Summer Session 2023 is a three-day deep dive into firm value. We have developed a program that will help you concretely identify how to generate value from business models and innovation, examine the role of data and employees in developing value, and explore the need to partner to create and capture value. And we will end each day with a session that allows participants to apply the research to their own organization.

A combination of lectures, case study presentations, and discussions led by MIT CISR and Sloan researchers & faculty members (see the topic list below) will be woven together with assessments and peer learning opportunities. We welcome both open-enrollment registrants and participants from MIT CISR sponsor and patron organizations at MIT CISR Summer Session each year. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance from MIT CISR.

Intended Audience for Summer Session
