“…we see these challenging times as an opportunity to rethink how we do business…”

MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems Research

The current global disruption gives leaders the chance to reflect critically on new ways to drive business value. However, we understand your current reality is managing a torrent of people, process and technology changes to rapidly reset as a lighter weight, more agile business. We invite you to invest an hour of your time to get actionable advice on how to prioritise your focus to operate more efficiently and effectively now, while also making smart investments to renew your business to drive sustainable growth.

As a research patron, Avanade is privileged to bring you exclusive insights from the Center for Information Systems Research at MIT Sloan School of Management (MIT CISR), alongside our own experiences working with 100s of clients globally to help them recover from the COVID-19 crisis.

Discussion topics will include:

  • COVID-19 response learnings and best practices based on conversations with executives globally
