MIT SMR: Understanding Decision-Driven Analytics
Making decisions with data too often comes down to finding a purpose for the data at hand - not finding the right data.

In this on-demand webinar, MIT SMR authors Bart de Langhe and Stefano Puntoni show how decision-driven data analytics results in better decision-making. They give examples of how data-driven often means answering the wrong question and offer steps for using data in a more effective way.

In this on-demand webinar, MIT Sloan School senior lecturer George Westerman, coauthor of the MIT SMR article "The New Elements of Digital Transformation," discusses his research into what digital transformation means now and offers examples and guidance for leading in the new landscape.

How we shop has been forever changed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Retailers across the world are trying to figure out how to best serve the online consumer.

Digital globalization has opened novel avenues for international expansion, yet rising geopolitical tensions and nationalism create new types of friction.

MIT SMR: Imagining Work Without Jobs
How can organizations achieve the agility required to thrive amid increasingly rapid change and disruption? And how can they better adapt to a wider array of both working arrangements and workplace technologies, especially automation? In this on-demand webinar, the authors of the new book Work Without Jobs (MIT Press) give their provocative answers to those questions. Ravin Jesuthasan and John Boudreau argue that leaders must embrace a new "work operating system" that begins by dismantling the idea of the conventional job and jobholder. This practice is key to unlocking new options for organizing work and sourcing, rewarding, and engaging workers. In this webinar, you will learn: Why the future of work will increasingly rest on the deconstructed elements of jobs (like tasks and projects) and demand a granular view of workers not as jobholders, but as owners of a variety of capabilities and skills. The seven key elements of the new work operating system: what they mean for workers, the work ecosystem, and management. How to get started by identifying trigger points and opportunities to rethink work in your organization.
