Conversations with CISR: Designed for Digital Book Talk

In this webinar recording, Jeanne Ross, Cynthia Beath, and Martin Mocker, co-authors of Designed for Digital, discuss insights they've gained watching companies attempting to apply the research findings in the book.
By Jeanne W. Ross, Cynthia M. Beath, and Martin Mocker

In September 2019, the MIT Press published Designed for Digital, a book by Jeanne Ross, Cynthia Beath, and Martin Mocker that offers guidelines for big companies pursuing digital transformations. The world has changed a great deal in the few months since the book's release, but the building blocks for a successful transformation have not. In a set of two live webinars in June 2020, the co-authors discussed insights they've gained as companies have attempted (or not) to apply their research findings to digital initiatives. This video is a recording of one of the two webinars, emceed by Kristine Dery.
