MIT Systems Thinking Conference

October 23-24, 2008 at MIT


SDM’s annual systems thinking conference provides opportunities for systems thinkers to learn practical applications from some of the world’s leading innovators from MIT and industry – as well as from each other.

Speakers at this year’s event, "Systems Thinking for Contemporary Challenges," will discuss best practices for applying systems thinking to areas that include sustainability and the environment, product design, technology strategy, entrepreneurship, and software. This two-day event has been carefully designed to provide you practical information that can be applied across industries, so that you can provide demonstrable value to your company when you return to the office.
