MIT Press Live! presents a virtual conversation with the authors of The Transformation Myth.
About this event
When COVID-19 hit, businesses had to respond almost instantaneously—shifting employees to remote work, repairing broken supply chains, keeping pace with dramatically fluctuating customer demand. They were forced to adapt to a confluence of multiple disruptions inextricably linked to a longer- term, ongoing digital disruption. This book shows that companies that use disruption as an opportunity for innovation emerge from it stronger. Companies that merely attempt to “weather the storm” until things go back to normal (or the next normal), on the other hand, miss an opportunity to thrive.
Join us to speak with the authors of The Transformation Myth, and learn more about how companies can adapt in an era of continuous disruption.
