See this recorded webinar, where Paul McDonagh-Smith of MIT Sloan Executive Education considers the arrival of extended reality (XR) on today’s business scene – what it means for you, your organization, the wider economy, and society.
Illuminating the, sometimes opaque, world of XR technologies – augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality, metaverse, 360 video, and more – this high-value live session focused on the short- and long-term business implications of this wave of burgeoning tech.
The eye-opening, emerging applications of XR in fields such as health, entertainment, and engineering are examined – and in business areas of supply chain, L&D, and collaboration.
XR is considered from a range of business perspectives:
1. An innovation perspective – opportunities around business model innovation, product design and development, and co-creation.
2. An operational and environmental perspective – where XR promises to change how we interact with supply chains, clients, each other, and diverse stakeholders.
3. A strategic perspective – contemplating the asymmetric risk of being an early or late adopter; as well as questions on remote work vs. the physical office space.
4. An organizational perspective – where XR may support flatter structures with higher engagement and productivity.
5. And from a management perspective – where XR poses questions on how we think about work, the way we get work done, the way we communicate and collaborate – and the way we train, upskill & learn.
Paul McDonagh-Smith offers a unique viewpoint on the exciting potential of XR, and a wealth of practical advice on what we can do today to prepare, explore, and participate in this new wave of technology.
