From the Publisher: An Invitation to Join the Conversation on the Future of Business

  • October 17, 2013

The way we discuss, analyze, and make decisions about the world’s most pressing issues is changing. The media at our disposal and the changing nature of communications demand that we find new approaches to problem solving.

With our business partners, MIT Technology Review is pioneering new ways to ask and answer technology’s toughest questions. We are offering them up to the smartest, most diverse global community we know: our readers.

Every Monday over the next five weeks, we will pose a challenging, provocative question on technologyreview.com. Our readership of business leaders, innovators, thought leaders, and early adopters will be invited to comment and engage in an active conversation through comments and social media. And at the end of each week, we’ll pose our definitive answer to these questions, incorporating the good thinking of our audience.

These questions will focus on the intersections of business and technology; they may apply to any industry, any line of business, and any role. They represent the biggest challenges facing the international business community. And we hope the “conversations on the future of business” that start on these pages can stimulate discussion, further our thinking, and offer some answers.
