Participants will first hear perspectives from the academics, followed by 2 mini case studies from MSI corporate members. Discussion will follow each component.


MSI Insights Exchange was developed in response to member interest in gathering practitioners from across industries to discuss shared issues, and a desire to learn from each other and MSI’s world-class network of academic experts. 


MSI will define session topics throughout the year that matter most to members. 

Each topic will start with a virtual meeting (a meeting group may convene as frequently as needed, and provide input into research projects if desired). Members are not required to commit to more than any given meeting. 

Top academic experts will kick off the session. Members will have a unique opportunity to share real-world observations, tackle pressing issues, or present informal mini-case studies fostering a collaborative environment that drives actionable insight and innovative solutions.
