SDM annual conference to explore best practices in systems thinking - SDM Pulse, Summer 2008

By Lois Slavin, MIT SDM communications director

Each year SDM alumni plan and host a two-day conference focused specifically on topics of leadership, innovation, and systems thinking. Held annually since 2001, the conference is open to all members of the SDM community, including partner companies, alumni, students, faculty, and staff.

The theme for the 2008 is “Systems Thinking for Contemporary Challenges.” Industry experts and MIT faculty will discuss best practices for applying systems thinking to areas that include sustainability and the environment, product design, technology strategy, entrepreneurship, and software.

“The SDM conference is an opportunity for systems thinkers to learn practical applications from best-in-class academics and practitioners,” said conference chairperson Vineet Thuvara, SDM ’05, and senior manager for worldwide Windows server enterprise marketing at Microsoft Corporation. “Attendees will find ample opportunity to have their questions answered and to share their own experiences as well.”

We invite you to join us on October 23-24, 2008! For details and registration information, contact John M.
Grace, SDM industry codirector, jmgrace@mit.edu, 617.253.2081.
