Enabling Clinical Research + Practice
In this course, participants learn to analyze the performance of projects, and even entire departments, from a financial perspective; gain a deeper understanding of how resources are allocated throughout an organization; and understand how to leverage cost analysis to position a particular project or department for success.
AI is transforming many industries. But addressing the full cycle, from development through deployment, requires key system engineering building blocks. Without these frameworks, efforts can be costly and unsuccessful. Learn how an AI systems engineering approach can avoid implementation pitfalls in this live webinar—a preview of the upcoming live virtual course AI Strategies and Roadmap: Systems Engineering Approach to AI Development and Deployment.
The digital future is here, and the threat of disruption looms large. In a rapidly expanding digital marketplace, legacy companies without a clear digital transformation strategy risk being left behind. The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the transition to a digital future. To succeed, companies must embark on the difficult path of digital transformation…and that doesn’t mean creating another app. But what does digital transformation mean for your company and your business? How can we stay on the top of these rapid changes? What challenges have many high-profile companies faced? How can you prepare to succeed in a changing digital climate?
Join the MIT Industrial Liaison Program for this webinar series to discuss the successes - and failures - of digital transformation, from taking the right approach to squeezing the most value out of your data, to embracing and maintaining the transformation.
Long before the current pandemic, MIT has fostered a culture which believes that innovation is about change, and that change is about resiliency. Enduring and recovering from difficult technical, environmental, and personal challenges depends on how quickly we can innovate a solution around them. New technologies which succeed are those which can adapt to different settings, promise widespread application, and most importantly, stay flexible in a constantly changing business environment.
Focused on basic principles of accounting and financial decision making for managers, this program will help transform a technical leader’s ability to manage and advocate for both day-to-day and long-term activities.
This program offers a fresh approach—a doer's approach—to innovating. Aspiring innovators will explore how to turn their “hunches” into tangible, real-world problems by learning to envision the organizations that can solve them. You will discover the advantages of converting challenges into opportunities and acquire the necessary tools and techniques to work with parts and people to move forward in your innovating.
The desire to develop solutions to the challenges we face is intrinsic within us as humans. However, with an overflow of data generated daily, solutions are often developed that exclude certain groups or may not be based on the critical needs people have. An increased focus on the context of our solutions, however, can lead us as we develop human-centered products, ventures, and services. But how do we establish that context? Is it through the data or the tech we use? The processes we establish? Or does it come directly from those who have experienced these problems?
Kendall Square has been described as “the most innovative square mile on the planet.” The Boston Globe recently described the Kendall area, “the beating heart of biotech. And if Kendall is the beating heart, then MIT must be the aorta. …” But the discoveries from MIT extend far beyond biotech to include AI, ML, nanotechnology, advanced manufacturing, robotics, small satellites, 6G, and much more. The opportunities for interaction and cross-fertilization are unparalleled for companies and their executives that are flocking to the area, and the students and faculty of MIT, whose presence is drawing them. The close engagement of firms with MIT, spanning the full innovation cycle from basic academic research all the way to the marketplace, is enabling both MIT and firms to bring about breakthrough innovations.
Firms that intend to survive and prosper from the coming waves of innovation need to engage with MIT faculty members and students, and the stream of startups emanating from MIT’s laboratories. Yet, questions remain: How should firms do this? How do entrepreneurial innovation ecosystems actually work? What should executives be looking for? What roles should company representatives and executives embrace? How should open innovation teams be organized? To whom should these teams report and how should firms organize themselves internally to capture real value from their engagement with MIT and the surrounding MIT-Kendall Square Innovation Ecosystem?
Based upon years of groundbreaking research into the human and organizational sides of innovation, MIT faculty members and researchers, and members of MIT’s Office of Corporate Relations, will give foundational insights, and provide original and thought-provoking perspectives, into what works, and what doesn’t, engaging the MIT-Kendall Square Innovation Ecosystem.
This sustainability webinar will feature the latest in disruptive research and commercialization efforts at MIT in sustainable materials, industrial processes and modeling. Join us as we explore new ideas and opportunities ranging from plastics to cement to energy.
