In the race to implement new manufacturing technologies and systems, such as the Industrial Internet of Things, it is often forgotten that factories and operations already have systems in place—and the inner workings of these systems tend to actively resist any change forced upon them. Our new “Implementing Industry 4.0: Leading Change in Manufacturing and Operations” program, April 4-5, is designed to help manufacturing executives and frontline leaders implement technological change at their companies while developing a company culture that embraces ongoing change.

Newsweek, Bloomberg, and Marketplace, among many other media outlets, have recently touted the meteoric rise of the Bitcoin’s value (almost 90 percent last year). In fact, Bloomberg declared Bitcoin the world's best performing currency in 2016, a title that the cryptocurrency has held every year since 2010 (with the exception of 2014). This recent surge has a lot to do with the implosion of global currency markets, as people are looking for more efficient ways to move and store money in the face of considerable geopolitical risk. Will 2017 be the year Bitcoin goes mainstream? Read on: http://mitsln.co/6CTk307Q92m

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Turns out, so is the price. Research and practice have consistently show that how customers perceive a price is as important as the price itself. This recent Harvard Business Review article examines how, even if customers fail to notice specific price moves in isolation, companies should make sure customers have a good sense of how the firm’s prices compare to those of competitors. http://mitsln.co/6Dme307MhzI

With Brexit, the Trump presidency, and so many other international developments on the horizon in 2017, it’s a very good time to study and understand macroeconomics. Macroeconomics deal with the performance, structure, behavior, and decision-making of an economy as a whole rather than individual markets. This includes national, regional, and global economies.

MIT Sloan’s award-winning Professor Roberto Rigobon will teach his popular, three-day course, “Understanding Global Markets: Macroeconomics for Executives,” March 13-15. You will leave the program with a better understanding of the global economic environment, and how macroeconomics can impact your company and business decisions. Get ready for 2017, and learn more: http://mitsln.co/dcVP307MfbB

“HEB, Costco, Trader Joe’s, and QuikTrip all made Glassdoor’s 2017 ‘Best Places to Work: Employees’ Choice’ list, released in early December. These retailers pay better than many others and that counts for a lot in a low-wage industry like retail. But they also score higher on culture. What is it about their cultures that makes them such good places to work?” asks MIT Sloan’s Zeynep Ton, in a co-written article for January’s Harvard Business Review. Learn more about what makes these companies so special and successful. http://mitsln.co/rwRl307C6an
