MISI to Host the First MIT-Global SCALE Roundtable Forum on Social, Political and Technological Upheaval on Global Supply Chains
08 Feb 17
MISI will host a roundtable to discuss the implications for global supply chains of the current social, political, and technological upheavals, on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at the MISI campus. This is the first of the six roundtables to be held worldwide by the MIT Global SCALE Network. The purpose of these roundtables is to stimulate and learn from a selected group of industry experts about the implications of the current socio-technical developments in the global business environment—e.g., rise of populism, purported revolution of Industry 4.0, shift of economic growth towards Asia, etc.—on supply chains, and how companies should compete in the environment of the heightened level of uncertainty. The insights from the six roundtables will be compiled and published to a wide global community of supply chain leaders. We expect that these voices would be heard at the highest echelons of global decision making, and hopefully, influence the policy-making.
