MIT Sloan Management Review leads the discourse among academic researchers, business executives and other influential thought leaders about advances in management practice that are transforming how people lead and innovate. MIT SMR disseminates new management research and innovative ideas so that thoughtful executives can capitalize on the opportunities generated by rapid organizational, technological and societal change.
MIT SMR examines emerging critical insights about ways to create new products, services, and business models, by exploring new competitive strategies, work processes, organizational models and leadership methods.
The Winter 2012 issue of MIT SMR includes a new and engaging take from MIT Sloan faculty members Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee on the concepts they raise in their recent book, Race Against the Machine. It also features new research from MIT’s David Simchi-Levi that explains why a more layered, flexible, regional outsourcing strategy may replace the previous cheapest-in-China approach.
